The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is an initiative of the Department of Health. It aims to address loneliness and isolation among Home Care Package recipients and Residential Aged Care recipients. Volunteer visitors will meet with recipients on an ongoing basis to provide low-intensity and non-specialised companionship.
