With a major redevelopment underway, Caboolture Hospital is looking for more volunteers to help our community.
Caboolture Hospital Executive Director Angie Dobbrick said volunteers were valued members of the hospital team and appreciated by patients, visitors and staff.
“We know coming to hospital can be stressful and worrying for patients and visitors,” she said.
“Our volunteers offer kindness and compassion to help ease that worry for people.
“Staff really appreciate their help as well and look forward to seeing the volunteers come to their areas.”
From welcoming people to the hospital, to helping new parents in maternity, feeding the fish in Ward 4A, there is a volunteer role for everyone.
Caboolture Hospital is growing quickly and has started looking for more community members to join as volunteers, coordinated by The Common Good.
“These are exciting times and we look forward to more volunteers sharing this journey with us,” The Common Good Marketing General Manager Chloe Nguyen said.
Volunteer Jan, pictured above, has celebrated 20 years at Caboolture Hospital and still enjoys helping others.
“When I finished working in Brisbane, I decided I wanted to be involved in the Caboolture community where I lived,” she said.
“I kept looking in the newspapers because I knew something would pop up and one day there was an advertisement for a volunteer at Caboolture Hospital and I decided - that’s me!
“The little notice sat on my fridge for several months then one day I decided I’m ready, so I rang the number and here I am 20 years later!
“It’s been a win for the hospital and me because I’m out in the community and enjoying what I’m doing. I enjoy the people I work with, the visitors, the staff.”
