IN THE ST GEORGE AND SUTHERLAND AREA
Support A Patient
We are now recruiting volunteers for our CanCare program in the St George and Sutherland area.
Anyone who knows someone who has had cancer has some idea of the many challenges they face. Whether its the side effects of treatment, the emotional roller-coaster, staying healthy or just getting to hospital for treatment, the challenges are harder if you’re alone or without the support you need.
With one in four people living on their own, many people don’t have the support they need. After a cancer diagnosis is one of the times support is most needed. As a CanCare Navigator you will be trained and supported to provide one-to-one support. A little bit of help can go a long way and just being there can make a big difference to someone who finds themselves alone or without the support they need.
There is evidence that a person with cancer who is well supported and has their needs addressed, will have a higher quality of life and better health outcomes.
Why not give some of your time to someone who really needs it.
Following the training you will be able to provide valuable support to a person with cancer, while being supported as part of the CanCare team. You will have access to further training opportunities along with the peer-support and experience of existing volunteers.
The role of the CanCare Navigator is flexible and you can volunteer at a time that is convenient for you and the person you are supporting. This is a rewarding role where your support, often for just a few hours a week can make a real difference.
We also encourage anyone with other language skills to apply.
