Riverina Community College
Riverina Community College has been a part of the Community Visitors Scheme for more than 20 years. The CVS scheme is a Commonwealth Government Funded Scheme and is available to people residing in an Australian government subsidised aged care home or people living in their own home who are in receipt of a Home Care package.
The CVS aims to improve the quality of life of the care recipient. Receiving a visit regularly has been shown to increase people’s self esteem and lessen feelings of anxiety and social isolation they may have. They begin to feel connected to their community again.
