Can you make Ricky laugh?

Kempenhaeghe

“Hi, I'm Ricky, a cheerful, social, pleasant young man of 24 years old. I live in a Kempenhaeghe country house in Heeze. I have a moderate intellectual disability and epilepsy, but luckily I have few seizures during the day. I enjoy working with the Boelakkers in Heeze and with the Cooking Stars at Kloostervelden. I like to joke and watch videos on YouTube in my spare time. I especially like to watch Enzo Knol, Bassie and Adriaan and listen to Dutch music. I'm looking for a buddy to do fun things together. Going to the village together, having a drink together, cycling, a day out or having a nice chat. I love football and would love to go to a match (preferably Feyenoord). You also make me happy by taking a ride together in the car or to deliver packages or mail together. I prefer to chat with everyone but would love it if you came to me especially for a chat! “ Do you want to put a smile on Ricky's face? And do you enlarge his living environment by doing things together? Then we'd love to hear it! For questions or if you are interested, please contact: Carlijn – Coordinator of volunteer work Our residents are central, but we think it's important that volunteers enjoy working, at times that suit them.

Play together! Dia-kien with our residents

Kempenhaeghe

At Kempenhaeghe we are committed to the well-being of our residents every day. One of the activities that our residents really enjoy is slide fishing. It is a moment of fun, relaxation and social interaction. Our residents, ranging from young to old, look forward to this special activity every month where they have a chance to win great prizes through a bingo game with images. To make this event run smoothly and successfully, we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who want to support our residents and help with this fun afternoon or evening. What is dia-kiening? Dia-kiening is one of the most popular activities of our residents. It is similar to bingo, but with pictures. Participants can win great prizes and enjoy a pleasant afternoon or evening. As a volunteer you play an important role in organizing and supervising slide events. Before the start of the fishing and during the break, you help with coffee and the bar together with other volunteers. During the skiing you assist participants by helping them with the game and checking whether they have "kidged". You also help them figure out their price. After the game you help clean up and make sure everything is tidy again. Dia-kienen is once a month on Saturday. From July 27 we will start with two groups: the first group from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM and the second group from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. We want to create 2 volunteer teams, 1 for the afternoon round and 1 for the evening round. Who are you? We are looking for someone who is social and can get along well with our diverse group of residents. You are patient and enjoy helping others. In addition, you are available on Saturday afternoons and you enjoy being part of a team. During slide lessons, two people from the Leisure Department are always present to support you. In the event of an epileptic seizure or other emergency, they contact the department. You work with a diverse group of residents, from young to old. There will be around 50 participants with a higher level. Sometimes the behavior of residents can flare up a bit due to the crowds, but your patience and social skills help to deal with this well. Would you like to participate in a fun and meaningful activity?

That's why as a volunteer you get, among other things: - a travel allowance - an end-of-year gift - a volunteer party - free participation in courses and workshops - free participation in the staff association - fitness at a reduced rate And of course a card on your birthday!

Pieter is looking for a mentor!

Mentorschap Zuidoost Brabant, Stichting

Pieter is looking for a mentor! Pieter is a man who lives in a care institution. His mother recently passed away and Pieter now has no parents. His only sister lives abroad. Pieter no longer gets visitors and he no longer goes to drink coffee with a large piece of apple pie on a terrace, which he likes so much. Now Pieter has to go to the dentist and the supervisors of the care institution with the question: who gives permission for treatment under anesthesia. Pieter himself cannot give permission, because he does not understand what is being asked of him. In the past, Pieter's mother was called and she signed a declaration of consent. Peter needs a mentor! Someone who regularly visits Pieter, gets to know him and knows what he likes. But also someone who can make decisions in the field of care and well-being (treatment, nursing, care and guidance, so not about money matters), which Pieter cannot make himself because he does not understand them and cannot oversee the consequences of his decisions. Mentorship Southeast Brabant is looking for volunteers who want to become a mentor for people like Pieter. These volunteers receive basic training so that they can do their job well-rested. In addition, there are regular meetings with other mentors where questions that arise with mentors are discussed, where in-depth knowledge is provided. There is also always support from one of the foundation. Mentorship is a task laid down in law. The time it takes from the mentor depends on the client and his situation. But on average it takes 2 to 3 hours every two weeks. One time a visit is enough and the next time you go to the hospital for a treatment and it takes an afternoon. Does the above appeal to you and you can find yourself in the following profile a mentor is a volunteer who… ...can communicate well ...is initiative …is skilled in decisions and actions …cooperates well …independent and with integrity …can set boundaries ... can critically examine one's own behavior please feel free to contact Mentorship Southeast Brabant www.mentorschapzobrabant.nl

Volunteer mentor

Mentorschap Zuidoost Brabant, Stichting

VACANCY MENTOR(S) in the De Kempen region volunteer work 6 to 8 hours per month What if you have the opportunity to improve and/or guarantee the quality of life of someone else? That, thanks to you, a client is heard and seen, that you make a difference in their lives? And then you also decide your own working hours?! Stichting Mentorschap Zuidoost Brabant is looking for mentors in the Eindhoven region and specifically in the De Kempen and Helmond region. What is a mentorship? 1. Trust: Advisor and confidant, a beacon in a rapidly changing healthcare offering. 2. Protect: Mentoring is a way to protect someone who cannot make good decisions about his or her care. 3. Intervene: let the client decide as much as possible, but intervene where necessary. Importance of mentorship: • Fixed contact/person • Personally and socially involved • Being a sounding board and offering peace and balance. The mentor takes care of the client and discusses with the client whether he or she receives good care, nursing, treatment and guidance. Healthcare professionals are usually the first to pick up signals that indicate the need for additional support for the client. Mentorship is an important link in the care process. How does mentorship work in practice? • The mentor visits the client at least once every 2 weeks; • Builds a bond with the client. Gains his or her confidence and knows what the client wants; • Has a good working relationship with healthcare; • Contact the administrator to see what is financially possible; • If there is family, contact is also made with them, among other things to obtain more background on the client; • Checks whether the care is appropriate for the client; • In the case of a competent client, the mentor coordinates this with the client; • If the client is unable to do this, the mentor will ask questions to the healthcare provider; • Is the legal representative in plan and goal discussions such as in an MDO and its approval; • Monitor that the client receives care according to the care plan; • The mentor offers the client peace and security; • The mentor offers a different perspective on healthcare; • The mentor is a sparring partner without emotional interest. What do we ask of our volunteer mentors: As a volunteer, you want to support others by representing the interests of the client with personal attention and professional quality. For that you need: • Being a good listener; • Have empathy; • Take action where necessary; • Have good speaking and writing skills; • Be reliable towards your client and healthcare professionals and keep agreements; • And of course be discreet. And don't shy away from it: • It is not without obligation, but that you have a responsibility to represent your client's interests in the field of healthcare and welfare • A role with plenty of room to act at your own discretion within the boundaries of the tasks and responsibilities of 'good mentorship'. • A commitment for several years • A role is where you are a pivot in a network to connect with, among others, healthcare, administrator and family • It requires a time commitment of visiting the client at least once every 2 weeks • You participate in training courses, theme days and SamenSparren • You are computer literate and it is an advantage if you are familiar with social media • You ensure good reporting in the digital file. You also prepare an annual report for accountability to the court Mentorship provides valuable support throughout the care process. It creates a partnership that not only puts the interests of the client first, but also relieves healthcare professionals. In short; Being a mentor is a very versatile position in which you have a lot of freedom and can determine your own working hours. How do you become a mentor? • You can become a mentor by registering as a volunteer with the foundation. • You will be invited for an introductory meeting with our manager Patrick Vermeeren. Here you can also indicate what you do and do not want to do. • After the introductory meeting, we ask the candidate mentor to follow the mentorship training course in which you will learn all the ins and outs. • After proven suitability, we introduce the candidate mentor to a client for whom mentorship has been requested. • After an introduction and mutual consent, the application is submitted to the subdistrict court judge. • If the court decides to establish mentorship, you will become the legal representative/mentor on behalf of Stichting Mentorschap Zuidoost Brabant. • No prior training is necessary! The most important thing is that you can identify with the profile of our mentors. It is an advantage if you are familiar with healthcare, a former healthcare professional, (ex) informal caregiver or retired with the motivation to make a difference. Fees and costs Compensation is available for all mentors. This will be further explained in the introductory meeting. Clients pay a fee for mentoring, which consists of a one-off initial fee and annual costs. These rates have been determined by the judiciary. Declaration of Good Conduct (VOG) All volunteers at the foundation must be able to provide a declaration of conduct. Benefits: • Stichting Mentorschap Zuidoost Brabant facilitates the annual theme day 'Day of the Mentor'. During this meeting you will meet your colleagues and workshops will be organised. • You participate in an intervision group 'SamenSparren' in which you discuss cases and share experiences with your colleagues (at least once per quarter). • You will receive our quarterly newsletter in which we inform you about changes in the law, regulations, tips and advice, etc. • Naturally, our regional manager and support staff are always available as a sounding board for everything you encounter in practice as a mentor. Interested and motivated? We prefer to have an immediate, no-obligation conversation. Please contact our regional manager Patrick. Mentorship Foundation South East Brabant
