Michael thanks Eastern Health EDcare volunteers

Michael was honoured to meet with the dedicated and hardworking Eastern Health EDcare volunteers at the Maroondah Hospital this week.

The volunteers selflessly donate their time to care for patients and their family when attending hospital, who may be daunted by the experience or just need company and support.

Brave five year old Grace (pictured) was handed a home-knitted teddy bear by volunteers to brighten her day and keep her company.

Michael spent the morning speaking with patients and staff at the hospital. He thanked the staff and volunteers for their tireless work to improve the health and wellbeing of patients in their care.

Volunteering is a great way to give back to our community and meet new people.

The Eastern Health Volunteer Services is looking for people to join their friendly team.

Information sessions will be held at Wantirna Health, 251 Mountain Highway, Wantirna on:

  • Tuesday 21 April, 7:00pm – 8:00pm
  • Wednesday 22 April, 2:00pm – 3:00pm
  • Thursday 23 April, 7:00pm – 8:00pm
