Visiting lonely people

Are you someone who likes to visit a lonely person? At Present in Vriendschap we have been bringing, lonely people in contact with suitable volunteer. There are many “older” lonely people, but also young people, who call on us. Do you want to drink a cup of coffee, offer a listening ear, sometimes think along or maybe you can go for a walk or bike ride. In consultation with each other you will look for your way of giving attention. Attention is the keyword of our organization. Present in Friendship originated from a citizens' initiative. In addition to connecting people, we also organize small trips, a pleasant New Year's afternoon, a Sinterklaas afternoon, sometimes a dinner, depending on our budget. We regularly organize an afternoon for the volunteers to educate ourselves, but also to meet and get to know each other better. All this with the help of an expert. You are not alone and you can always fall back on the professionals or the board. On the website you can read a lot about what we have done in recent years. There are small articles about the trips and there is something to read about the background of our approach. If you are interested, we would like to make an appointment to meet you.

Hang out with someone who feels lonely

Present in Vriendschap

We ask a volunteer for a listening ear, attention, and your personal commitment in the broadest sense of the word. Think of cycling, walking, a cup of coffee, maybe rolling up your sleeves, playing a game. Any form of attention can be meaningful. People from the most diverse backgrounds call on us. Think of loneliness due to the loss of a family member, partner or deterioration of health, old age, loss of work, but also simply lonely because you can no longer easily participate in society. Having (usually) weekly contact means that there is something to look forward to. Then you feel seen and the day takes on color and meaning again. We find it very important to make the right match between you and the client. In addition to ensuring a good match, people can also participate in an activity a few times a year. Think of a New Year's moment, a fun outing, an afternoon in a beautiful garden, a Sinterklaas activity. You can also participate in this or help out, if that appeals to you. As a volunteer at Present in Vriendschap you are never alone. We have been around for over 7 years now and have built up a lot of experience. Several times a year we organize a pleasant but also substantive afternoon for the volunteers. Together with a professional, many important topics will be discussed. There are now about 90 people who call on us and we are happy with more than 40 volunteers who visit the people. You can read more about the ins and outs on our website. See also the newsletter. If you would like to know more or be involved, please send a message and we will make an appointment to get to know you. Betsie

Volunteer at Present in Friendship!

Present in Vriendschap

Dear reader, Are you still active, fit and are you still fully alive? Do you have enough friends and family around you? Fun activities you can participate in, sports or hobbies that you spend time on? Then we are looking for you. We are looking for people who are still fully alive and who also have time for others, because we are also there for people who feel more alone than nice. For people where the family has become a bit more on the side. For people where age has started to count more. For people who can no longer naturally participate in everything. For people where the partner, relatives or dear friends have passed away. For people who have lost their job or for people who have become limited by their health. We could all end up in that situation. Sooner or later ! At Present in Vriendschap we pass on attention. We do this by linking volunteers to people as written above. So if you are interested and have the time, sign up for an introductory meeting. We have a nice permanent group of volunteers and have been active in Etten-Leur for 7 years. Do you also have a listening ear, time for a cup of coffee, maybe want to walk, cycle, play a game, or whatever, then let us hear from you. We offer you sufficient help and guidance if necessary, we look for a good match, we have fun meetings for volunteers. We look forward to new volunteers, so feel welcome. Betsie

Help understand dementia: Supervisors wanted for VR project

Etten-leurvoorelkaar

Would you like to guide people who experience what it is like to have dementia with Virtual Reality glasses, and to experience this yourself? As part of the Dementia-Friendly Municipality of Etten-Leur, we want to inform as many residents as possible about dementia and gain more understanding for people with dementia. Personally experiencing dementia can help with this. The municipality of Etten-Leur has 4 VR glasses available that can be used to offer residents within Etten-Leur this experience. The municipality of Etten-Leur, de Nobelaer, Surplus and de Herbergier are actively involved in this project. What are you doing? We will use these VR glasses at various locations in Etten-Leur. This way, family members, volunteers and other interested parties in Etten-Leur can experience what it is like to have dementia. Because the experience with those glasses can also evoke many emotions, it is important that a discussion takes place with the people who wore them. We are looking for volunteers who can conduct these follow-up discussions and guide the participants. As a volunteer you first receive training and you are also supervised. A special role! Of course, because you can also experience the VR glasses yourself. But mainly because you help people with this experience and contribute to greater understanding for people with dementia. Together we make Etten-Leur dementia-friendly! Who are you? Would you like to work as a volunteer? And do you have or are: • Good communication skills. Conversation skills are especially important here. • Affinity with dementia. • Want to work at various locations in Etten-Leur • Flexible (but of course we make the planning in consultation) • Empathic ability. • Want to work together with a team of fun other volunteers. Then we are looking for you! What do we offer? Together with other volunteers you will work in a fun team where there is also a coordinator to support you. Naturally, we prepare you with training, during which you will learn to work with VR glasses, among other things. You can indicate your availability in consultation. After a session with the VR glasses, you can have a nice chat with your fellow volunteers.

Recruit collectors for the Heart Foundation

Muzikalhuis

We are looking for someone to assist me (Maria) in contacting collectors for the Heart Foundation. Or someone who wants to walk a neighborhood themselves. The number of collectors in Hoeven used to be large, but has dropped to 8 people. While the number of heart patients is increasing. The money raised through the collection will be well spent on research to combat heart failure. See: https://www.hartstichting.nl/kundig-onderzoek A walk takes 1 or 2 evenings a week in April. Will you join us for a walk next year? Walking is good for you and you help our society with collections. In addition to collectors, we are looking for someone who wants to help me (Maria) maintain contact with collectors and count the money after the collection. Ps. this has nothing to do with Muzikalhuis. I collect for the Heart Foundation as a volunteer.

Divorce Experts

Gemeente Etten-Leur

Divorce is one of the most stressful events. Many parents in divorce do not have people in their network outside of assistance that they can fall back on for a listening ear or recognition and understanding. These parents in particular need an expert who supports them in the divorce process. What is a Divorce Expert? Divorce experts by experience are adult volunteers who work as divorce experts and provide support to families in Etten-Leur. The volunteers offer a listening ear, recognition and understanding. An experiential divorce expert advises other parents in divorce, holds up a mirror and emphasizes the importance of the child. For whom? Volunteers who want to work as an experience expert in the field of divorces and who want to provide support to families in Etten-Leur. These volunteers have successfully completed their own process. They would like to help other residents of the municipality of Etten-Leur by offering them support in the divorce process. How do we work? The volunteers are screened, matched and guided by the coordinator in their role to support the parent(s) as well as possible. The coordinator of experiential experts on divorces makes the match between the parent and the experiential experts. The match is tailor-made. Both parties can indicate what their wishes and possibilities are. What do we expect from you? There are a number of conditions to become a divorce expert by experience. As a volunteer you have successfully completed your own divorce process. You must be 21 years or older. The coordinator will visit you to get acquainted. We ask you for a Certificate of Good Conduct. You can request this for free. In a training course you will learn more about support during divorces. Do you have questions during the process? Then you can contact the coordinator.

Gemeente Etten-Leur

The network is minimal and also helps where possible. The girl is a feisty, cheerful lady who likes everyone and gets along well with animals. She is very alert, likes to be around other children and if she disagrees with something she makes herself heard. She loves attention, cuddling and playing. Are you interested?!
