Volunteering at HBH

You’ll see volunteers from all walks of life helping out at HBH Senior Living, from schoolchildren to university students to caring locals who generously give up their time to enrich the lives of our residents. It really makes a difference!

Our wonderful volunteers help with all sorts of things, including chatting to our residents, running our on-site shop, serving morning tea, assisting with Happy Hour, playing games such as Bingo or Rummikub and helping our driver on mini-bus outings.

Volunteering can be organised at the best time that suits you, either on a regular basis or occasionally as and when required.

Dear Kim

I write to thank you and HBH Senior Living for the lovely brunch last Saturday.  On a grey day weather wise, it was a delightful morning. As always, it is lovely to meet with you and other volunteers. The food was magnificent, Five Star quality, presentation and quantity. Please give my congratulations to your talented young chef and his team, a job well done and very much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Anna Nichol
