Volunteering experience with elderly in Bolzano

For the second deadline of 2018 InCo has started to look for 2 future volunteers from for our partner organisation ASSB, based in Bolzano. ASSB manages several nursing homes. The service starts in September 2018 for 1  year.

Interested? Please read on for more information. Attached you can find the Infopack.


Proposed Activities:

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.
