Beschreiwung vun der Missioun:
The Seniorenzentrum Emmaus is a qualified institution for inpatient care of old people (residents live there). The house has 78 care spaces that are double or single rooms. There is also a day care programme for people in the area who need help. The institution offers holistic (mind and body) and encouraging support care with additional therapy services. There are also many free-time activities, varied events and a high level of comfort.
Aufgaben vum Volontaire:
Volunteer workers are a valuable part of the team, which improves the life of our seniors (elderly residents). While working at the Center, volunteers will develop their qualifications in the areas of personal, social and language competence. They will learn about different lifestyles and how to support old people. Some of these old people may be very fragile or have psychiatric changes (mental disease). Volunteers will learn about the organization and duties of an old age care institution, the volunteering activities include also some work of routine
This project is only for young people with less opportunities in terms of education which means without academic degrees even university entrance qualification. Volunteers should be open to working with old people who need care. Some of the residents may also have old-age diseases of the mind (for example, Alzheimer’s). Basic knowledge of the German language is helpful for the daily contact with: the residents, day-guests of the institution, family members and co-workers. Learning the German language should not be the volunteers’ only or main motivation for volunteering with this project.
