Clare Headland is a resident at Regis Inala Village, a retirement living village in Blackburn South, VIC. She has been a volunteer at the Regis community for the past fourteen months.
Clare is affectionately known as the ‘Roundabout bus driver’. On a typical day, she walks to the reception to retrieve the key for the bus, picks up passengers at the roundabout and ferries them to the bus station, café and appointments.
When asked what was it that attracted her to work with the elderly, Clare replied,
“The residents are pleasant, friendly and always appreciate my assistance”
She enjoys contributing to the easy functioning of the retirement village.
Outside her volunteering times, Clare enjoys reading, gardening and learning new things.
