Volunteer story – Delyce Lohf

For Busselton resident Delyce Lohf, volunteering at Capecare has provided company, friendship, and fun.

When her husband retired, they moved from Perth to Busselton and while he sought a quieter life, she wanted to retain the busyness a city life provided.

Rather than sitting at home and keen to make new friends, Delyce sought out an appropriate volunteer position. She enjoyed daily visits to her mother in a Perth aged care facility so sought out Capecare and signed up. She currently works two mornings a week.
