Laundry Volunteers Needed!

What would I be doing as a care home laundry volunteer?

You would be helping the laundry team as needed, supporting with basic laundry tasks. This could include, retrieving laundry from residents (including stripping and re-making beds) washing laundry, ironing and returning laundry to a resident.

What impact would I have?

These simple laundry tasks could free up another member of staff to help deal with ever-changing environment that the covid-19 outbreak has created in our care homes. As you can imagine, any help is greatly appreciated.

We’re looking for people who have the following skills and qualities:

  • Physically able to perform tasks required
  • Good communication skills
  • Flexible
  • Ability to take instruction and direction
  • An understanding of the needs of older people
  • Reliable and punctual
  • Patience, empathy and understanding of the needs of older people
  • Mindful of infection control and good hygiene at all times.

Why volunteer for MHA?

If youare passionate about caring for older people, MHA is the place for you. We are a national charity inspiring the best care at every stage of later life. It is our mission to enable people to live later life well and you could help us achieve this. Amid the coronavirus outbreak, this is more important than ever and we need help in order to keep up the levels of excellent care that we provide.

Our volunteers are making a difference every day

The highlight of your week could be volunteering with us, just as one of our laundry assistants at Hartcliffe care home says: “My favourite part of my role is talking with the residents. I feel part of a team. Volunteering is one of the highlights of my week.”
