Michelle Lekhoathy

Skye Harvey Community Connections – Individual

Organisation:

Advocare Incorporated

We would like to nominate Michelle to acknowledge the amazing service and passion she brings to our Community Visitors Scheme (CVS). Advocares CVS provides companionship and positive engagement to over 150 older people across the community. Michelle joined Advocare, bringing her 25+ years volunteering experience to set up CVS, which continues to grow from strength to strength. She always goes over and above to ensure both clients and volunteers feel valued and engaged. During recent COVID restrictions, Michelle put together care packages with activities and treats for clients and volunteers – personally delivering most of them. As well as working tirelessly for CVS, she is also working with Volunteering WA on the Re-engaging Volunteers into Residential Aged Care Facilities Program. This national program provides non-clinical social and emotional support to older people living in residential aged care. Michelle has been instrumental in rolling this out to facilities in WA.
