Attitude to residents is the most significant factor that determines the quality of care.
Volunteers can offer unique assistance in an aged care environment, strengthening the supply of many needed services to the frail aged. Volunteers contribute new values through their enthusiasm and the assuming of certain responsibilities.
Volunteers are always welcome at Garden Village and every courtesy is extended to them.
