Cowra's Ability Network is on the look out for new volunteers to assist with their aged care services.

Ability Network's purpose is to enhance individual ability through empowering older adults to remain living independently at home for longer.

"Ability Network Aged Care Services provide an extensive range of services that are individually tailored that can meet your care needs now and in the future," the Ability Network's Sarah Hazell said.

"Our passion is to keep older residents in their own home by providing professional care.

"Ability Network Aged Care Services have a variety of quality home care and social programs throughout the central west that can improve your wellbeing, social and community connection and independence.

"Our programs benefit the broader community by assisting older adults receive tailored care that will assist them to live the lifestyle they choose."

Ms Hazell said the organisation provides employment and volunteer opportunities for those who enjoy sharing their time with other people.

"There are various programs you can participate in that will compliment your hobbies and interest, and you have opportunity to develop new skills too," she said.

"There is no experience required, just a desire to connect with people who would love your support.

"By giving some of your time, you will be helping older people to remain living independently in their own homes and to engage in meaningful social activities."

One of the service's volunteers, Robyn, said her main goal in volunteering is to help give clients what they need and for them to know they are valued.

"I volunteer my time because I really like getting to know our older folk in the community," she said.

"I love listening to their history and stories."
