We are excited to announce CFMG have partnered with a local twilight care as an extension of our long-standing Community Support Program. The initiative, dubbed ‘Many Moons’ will run throughout 2019 with Team members taking a few hours a month out of their workday to spend time with the elderly, whether it’s running bingo, painting nails, reading a book aloud or just having a yarn.
We are especially passionate about this partnership because we are able to contribute meaningfully to an industry with similar challenges to our own, being debt recovery and aged care. They may not be shiniest draw cards for participation but they are a necessary and important part of our society.
Many studies reveal that social isolation is a major area of stress for older people, having widespread impacts on their physical as well as mental health and wellbeing. Our objective is to provide increased social contact to the elderly within our local community in order to help improve their quality of life. Other aims include expanding the opportunities for our team members to give back as an integral part of their personal employee experience, as well as gaining perspective and learning life lessons from the wisdom and experience of those with increased life tenure.
We will post updates on how Many Moons is tracking in the coming months!
