BLUE CARE Redbank Respite Care is calling for more volunteers following the centre's makeover.
The centre, at 24 Brisbane Rd, is a not-for-profit organisation which relies on volunteers to help deliver caring services to more than 12,500 people each day.
It has just undergone refurbishment to upgrade its activity rooms and outdoor area.
Centre service manager Michelle Grillett said older offices were transformed into activity rooms while the garden was redesigned to make more use of the outdoor area.
She said volunteers were now needed to assist in the areas of recreational activities, food preparation and transportation.
Collingwood Park resident Colleen Kaatz has been volunteering at the centre for the past 18 years.
She said it was a rewarding experience.
"You develop friendships with the elderly people," she said.
"You get a better understanding of how they're feeling and they really appreciate it."
Ms Kaatz volunteers about three hours of her time each week.
The school cleaner said once she retires she planned to increase her volunteering hours.
"I enjoy it and the more hands they have the better," she said.
To celebrate its refurbishment and new look, Blue Care Redbank Respite Care staff and volunteers have invited the public to an open house on November 19, from 10am until 12pm.
"Our staff and volunteers are proud of our updated centre and we welcome community members to come in and have a look," Ms Grillett said
Blue Care Redbank Respite Care offers music therapy, activities, craft, outings, transportation and meals, and assists 85 people living in the Redbank area, along with their families.
Anyone interested in volunteering or to find out more about the open day, phone the centre on 3818 1618.
