Welcome to our team at
Rockingham. This section of the website is designed to give you a
broad overview of what being a volunteer at Rockingham is about.
At Rockingham, volunteers
form part of our personal care department and are managed by our
Friends of Rockingham sub-group. The Friends of Rockingham meet
regularly, and all our volunteers received our regular newsletter. Your interest in helping us provide
care for our residents is greatly appreciated, and we hope that you will
come to share the personal satisfaction we experience from working as a
team, and from sharing in the lives of our 'special' residents.
Rockingham has a set of
volunteer guidelines to assist you. The guidelines are designed
to help you know Rockingham, and keep you accurately informed of
Rockingham's policies and procedures, so that you can really enjoy your
time with us.
The policies and procedures
at Rockingham are not there to cause undue hardship for you, rather they
are there simply to let you know what to expect from us, and what will be
expected of you. The policies are not unchangeable, but will remain
in effect until changes are considered necessary. As part of the
Rockingham 'team', you'll be notified when any changes are made.
