Welfare Group – Home & Hospital Visitation Services
The Welfare Office is normally open between 10-00am and 12-00 noon every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Please feel free to call into the Welfare office and have a chat to the voluteers. They may also share a cup of tea or coffee with you. Many of the volunteers have become involved with other activities at the RSL such as, the Power House Day Club and assisting with transporting members to clinics and surgeries.One of the main activities for the Welfare Group is visiting our sick, frail and elderly veterans and if possible, offering assistance as required.Can we visit you? – Visiting a sick or frail veteran or widow in their home or whilst they are in hospital or a nursing home or hostel is usually greatly appreciated by the recipient of the visit. However due to the provisions of the Privacy ACT, it is no longer possible for Hospitals or Nursing Home staff to provide our RSL Visiting Teams with the patient lists that would allow Volunteers to visit them as a matter of routine. Before a member of our welfare team can visit a veteran and / or their family, someone must notify the welfare group of that request.
If you have or know a relative or friend who is an RSL member and does not have the support of their family and friends and would like a visit from one of the Morwell RSL Welfare Volunteers at home, in Hospital or a Nursing Hostel, please contact the Welfare Co-ordinator of the Morwell RSL, by telephoning the Morwell RSL Sub-Branch on (03) 5134 2455 and leave a message with our receptionist. A welfare representative will contact you and arrange a visit or other assistance as required.
