Friendship Blooms Through Volunteering

Sometimes friendship surprises us and blooms in the most challenging of places. This was the case for Peter and Keith. They met back in January 2015, when their wives entered our Blue Mountains-based aged care centre, Morven Gardens, within the same week.

Since then they have built a solid friendship, volunteering at the aged care centre in Leura, and supporting each other throughout their wives’ dementia journeys.

Keith and Peter also volunteer in BaptistCare’s Stronger Carers Peer Support program, to help others navigate their dementia journey with loved ones.

Keith and Peter are just two of the 1000 volunteers doing important and powerful work across BaptistCare and who we were grateful for during National Volunteer Week in May 2018.
