Volunteers are there to support the growth of the residents, to recognise their needs and interests and to visit them regularly to provide loving companionship in their lives.

Established in 1955, the Switzer home Auxiliary is a voluntary group which meets monthly to raise funds for ‘luxury’ items for the residents at Switzer. These items include, ‘Happy Hour’ drinks, gifts for birthdays and Christmas, money for special outings, entertainment and social events. Their activities enrich the quality of life of each of our residents.
If you would like to join the Auxiliary please contact us, they meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 13.30 and you would be very welcome.
