Community Visitors Scheme

The Community Visitors Scheme aims to decrease social isolation in the community for older Tasmanians.

It aims to enrich the quality of life of older people throughout Tasmania:

  • Living in the community, who are recipients of a Home Care Package to help extend the time they can remain living in their home independently
  • Aged care residents who are socially isolated or lonely and would benefit from a friendly visitor
  • Residents of aged care homes who would benefit from Group Visits, which can be spent undertaking activities they enjoy.

Visits are spent doing the things that the older person most enjoys, like reading, listening to music, watching a favourite TV show or just chatting and reminiscing.

Activities may also extend to a walk or an outing, subject to the health and mobility of the person being visited.
