Kaye - volunteer at Hyland House Day Respite Centre

I mainly volunteer to give back to others. It also keeps me busy and learning new things. I certainly think I will be volunteering here for more years to come, or until I eventually become a member of Hyland House myself!

Testimonial

Lorraine - Home Care and Respite

“I’m finding Hyland House very helpful. The ladies that are a part of the craft group are all so lovely. It’s nice to be around people and it’s a good environment to be in, rather than sitting in a silent house by yourself.”

The staff are wonderful here. They’ve been so supportive. When you are having issues with pain or you are sad, they’re there for you and they’re lovely. They seem to work well as a team and I can’t speak highly enough of them.

Michelle Rees - Volunteer

In my experience, volunteers are a lovely bunch of people and the Wesley Mission Queensland volunteers are amongst the friendliest. Their fundraising team are always on hand to provide support, and make sure their volunteers are well-looked-after.

Jan - Cooper House residential aged care community

It’s the security - the security of knowing that if you’re not feeling well, you can talk to someone who knows what to do. And then they come back and ask you how you are. It’s comforting.
