Volunteers will collaborate with the staff of nursing homes mainly with recreational and entertainment activities planned for the elderly. In particular volunteers will be involved in the following activities:

  • organizing recreational activities for the elderly/handicapped people,
  • talking to them,
  • reading something,
  • participating in some excursions of one or more days,
  • making different kind of purchases (e.g. food, medicine for the guests),
  • support of the educators in the activities of assistance,
  • care and rehabilitation,
  • accompanying the elderly with walking difficulties,
  • participating in the evaluation meetings
  • and planning certain matters with the educators and social workers etc.

Please bear in mind that you will work with elderly people and that they may not be as autonomous as you could imagine. Indeed, some of them have Alzheimer or other illnesses.

Moreover, volunteers will have the opportunity to be involved in parallel activities together with other volunteers hosted in other receiving organizations coordinated by InCo. The topic of the parallel activities will change according to the project. (Making games, organizing events, exhibitions, etc.)

You will get free accommodation for the whole duration of your voluntary service.

Indeed, if the room is inside the nursing home “Villa Serena” (close to the city center and the Talvera river), it is at the last floor totally separated from the floors where elderlies are hosted and doing activities.

During working days, you will eat your lunch in the canteen of the elderly home/handicapped centre where you work together with the staff. The other meals and during the weekends (or free days if you decide to stay in Bolzano), you have the possibility to eat in the canteen of the nursing home where you live. In any case you will receive a food allowance to cover the expenses linked to meal for dinner, holidays and weekend.

Volunteers will receive 150,00 € per month as pocket money.
