We are inviting Volunteer Professional Nurses to join our ‘Patient Care Team’.

Your responsibility will be to assist with weekend call duty and attend monthly meeting / in service training.

You will only be on call one weekend every 4 to 5 weeks. Friday morning around 08h00 you will be joining Sr Elsa Swanepoel, our Nursing Service Co-ordinator, on  home visits and assist with our patient care plan and reports.  From lunch time you will be on ‘call’ for the weekend to help patients if needed. Often telephonic support is sufficient and it is not always necessary to go to the patient’s home.

Monday morning, you will meet Sr Elsa for hand over and once more join her on patient rounds and writing of reports.

Please note, you will be provided adequate training and there will always be the support of a Professional Nurse if required.

The Medical Meeting / In Service training is normally the second Thursday of the month from 10h00 – 12h00.

Please feel free to contact Sr Elsa or visit our office to discuss further should you wish to join our small, caring and dedicated Patient Care Team!

We also welcome the assistance of the community in other areas:

  • We often require help with fundraisers and the preparations thereof, and we welcome offers of creative input and services ‘behind the scenes’
  • We also require help in transporting the elderly to and from our Wednesday morning support group; we need reliable drivers who can help on a regular basis

If you would like to volunteer your time and assistance please contact our office.
