Activity Assistant

Volunteers can help Juniper staff to deliver group activities, including arts/crafts, bingo, quizzes in our residential care facilities.  

This volunteer role may include assisting with running the activity or spending time one-on-one with particular residents to enable them to participate more fully.

As a Juniper Volunteer, you'll be well supported by Juniper staff so you don't feel out of your depth, and they will also be pleased to hear of your own special talents that you can bring to trigger the interest of our residents.

Some of our residents live with dementia and all volunteers are encouraged to learn more about this disease by joining the world class, free online training available at the University of Tasmanian Wicking Centre.

One to One Visitor

Living in a residential care facility brings about many feelings for our residents. Many feel safe and secure in the knowledge they are being cared for to the high standard set by Juniper, but some miss the social contacts they've had in the past.

The role of a one to one volunteer is important in helping break this sense of isolation and loneliness and residents appreciate have their own special visitor. Volunteers interested in this role should be prepared to commit for many months to ensure the residents do not experience frequent losses by churning of helpers and loss of special relationships.

Ensuring the spiritual needs of our residents are accommodated is very important at Juniper. Our Pastoral and Spiritual Care team are here for all parties during difficult times. They can act as confidants on a wide range of subjects. We aim to also support family members and staff, and respond to their needs and preferences as the need arises.

Pastoral care volunteers must progress through a dedicated training programme conducted periodically through the year.

Administration Support

Volunteers assist Juniper administration staff with general administrative tasks including filing/archiving, production of resources, enveloping for mailouts and other administrative tasks.  Volunteers usually work a 3-4 hour shift on a weekly or ad hoc basis.

Generally based at Juniper Central in Balcatta, Administration Support Volunteers are sometimes utilised across all of the Juniper locations.

Bus and Van Driving

Juniper has a small fleet of mini buses that can be driven off a standard driving license.

The bus and van drivers are valued by the residents and community clients. You will be supported in your role by a Juniper staff member who will be onboard at all times when you have passengers. 

All driving roles involve taking people on outings in groups, with some lasting half a day, and some being full days. We will orientate you to the vehicle, giving you practice driving time.
