Events in the nursing home

Verpleeghuis Meerstate - ViVa! Zorggroep

For our events at Meerstate nursing home, we are looking for volunteers who would like to come and help push our residents' wheelchairs on a one-off or incidental basis. Every year, a number of events are organized in-house, such as a spring market, vinyl bingo, King's Games, summer party, old Dutch games, light tour or Christmas market. We can always use the help of volunteers who pick up our residents in their wheelchairs from their department and drive them around the various activities. Fun guaranteed!! The events always take place during the week and during the day between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. or between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. If you are fit and enjoy fun, I would like to invite you for a no-obligation introductory meeting.

Visiting volunteer for wheelchair walking

Verpleeghuis Meerstate - ViVa! Zorggroep

I am looking for a visiting volunteer for an enthusiastic, wheelchair-bound forty-something who would like to visit Meerstate for an hour once a month, or more often if we get along very well. This sweet, quiet man has not lived in Meerstate for very long and is quite young compared to his fellow residents. In the past he was very sporty in the field of gym and gymnastics and has completed the Nijmegen 4 Days several times. He would like to have visitors every now and then to walk together. Will you be the one to help this nice man expand his world again? Are you calm by nature and fit enough to push the wheelchair for an hour? Please contact me for a no-obligation introductory meeting. Experience with driving a wheelchair is not required, we will teach you that in Meerstate!

Verpleeghuis Meerstate - ViVa! Zorggroep

Or are you inspired by Teun Toubes, but don't know how to approach it or what would suit you? Please contact me! My name is Sylvia and I am the volunteer coordinator of the Meerstate nursing home on Mozartstraat in Heemskerk. You can contact me for an introductory meeting and a tour without obligation so that you can get an idea of Meerstate and what kind of volunteer work can be done.

Informal caregiver = administrator = help needed

Verpleeghuis Meerstate - ViVa! Zorggroep

"My wife suffers from dementia (young dementia). She has been admitted to a nursing home and I have become her administrator, this has to do with our house. Now I am looking for someone who is/was in the same situation and who can help me. I have to report to the judge every year, just like professional administrators, so I am looking for how to keep good records. I have already asked various places if they know someone who can help me, but no. I hope to meet a fellow sufferer through this. Do you recognize yourself in my description or do you know someone who resembles me? Let's contact you by telephone to find out whether you are the one I am looking for!" The social worker is the person who placed this advertisement and who you will contact first.

Our volunteers pick up our residents from the living rooms and take them by wheelchair or, if they are still able, by walker, to the ground floor and the room where the activity takes place. You will also stay with our residents during the activity and help them, for example, with the song book. The religious celebrations are on the 1st and 4th Sunday of the month. You will be active as a volunteer from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The religious music is on the 2nd Monday of the month. You will be active as a volunteer from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Would you like to help us with religious celebrations or religious music? If so, we would like to invite you for an introductory meeting without obligation! We hope to hear from you!

Flex drivers

STG vrijwilligershulp & mantelzorg

Will you help our clients get started and help us out? Would you like to be active voluntarily, but is this not possible on a regular basis? Then this might be a nice solution. For periods when not all our permanent volunteer drivers can drive, we are looking for enthusiastic drivers for our flex pool. To get to the SIG daytime activities, our clients are brought and taken by volunteer drivers. These transport volunteers drive to our various daytime locations in the Central and South Kennemerland regions with a (wheelchair) bus from the SIG. In times of illness or a holiday period, we would like to call on drivers who can occasionally step in for a day or several days and who can strengthen our active team of volunteers in the Haarlem and Beverwijk area. In addition to good driving skills, we expect you to have good communication skills in contact with people with intellectual disabilities. Are you someone with experience and/or affinity with people with disabilities, in possession of a driver's license and would you like to lend a helping hand in busy times? Then become one of our drivers and ensure that our clients can still get to their day care on time. It is useful to know that: - it is really essential that you are available during the week (not during the weekend). - riding takes place in Beverwijk, Haarlem and the surrounding area. - therefore it is important that you live in or near Beverwijk/Haarlem - it is possible to take a ride with an experienced driver without obligation so that you can experience whether the work meets your expectations and possibilities. - you will become part of an enthusiastic team of drivers. - you will be given a mobile phone at your disposal during the performance of your volunteer work - there is an opportunity to participate in an extensive internal training offer. - you receive a monthly volunteer allowance based on the hours you work.

Hand massage in healthcare institution

Both Hands

Activities: Hand and forearm massage for elderly people with dementia in healthcare institutions. "How wonderful this is" is just one example of the many positive reactions we hear. If you are looking for an activity where you can experience a lot of meaning, then you have come to the right place. After following the workshop (3 hours) you can become part of an enthusiastic team of masseurs that regularly puts the elderly in the spotlight. We do this for healthcare institutions in the Haarlem, Zuid-Kennemerland, IJmuiden, Haarlemmermeer, Amstelveen and Spijkenisse regions. We are active in more and more places. You always give the massages together with another masseur. The massage team falls under the Massage for Care foundation. If we have the resources, you may claim the legally determined volunteer allowance. It is a rewarding activity and always surprising. The foundation provides good support. Workshop costs: €60, including reference work, massage oil and certificate of participation Intentions: Involvement with the elderly, loving. Working hours: once a month, more often is possible. It partly depends on the number of masseurs and the demand from healthcare institutions. Admission procedure: Participation in the Hand-Forearm Massage workshop Guidance: You will be part of an enthusiastic team. We provide in-depth training, practice moments and meetings. Obligations do not fit into our vision, but commitment does! This is an activity that can be shaped in practice from the heart.

Vive la France - buddy

Verpleeghuis Heemswijk - ViVa! Zorggroep

We are looking for a visiting volunteer for a lovely woman who lives with us in Heemswijk Nursing Home in Heemskerk. She is originally from France and has lived in the Netherlands for a long time, which means she also speaks Dutch well. When you have a chat with her, she brightens up and also shows interest in you. Due to her condition with serious memory problems, she has a compulsion to eat too much and she makes a lot of effort to always get food and drink (coffee). If you talk to her about it calmly, she will respond with understanding. How nice would it be if she had a visit and maybe even had a chat in French. Knowledge of the French language is not a requirement. Our resident has not only a French, but also an Italian background, so if you are interested in Italy, that is certainly a nice topic of conversation. Inside she walks with a walker and outside she sits in a wheelchair. If you could push a wheelchair outside that would be great, but it is not a requirement. The most important thing is the personal contact. Have a nice chat together in the garden or inside. Play a game (Yahtzee). That makes her happy. As far as the concentration of our resident is concerned, a conversation or game will last a maximum of about 30 to 45 minutes. If you have an hour available once a week or once every 14 days to visit her and add color to her day, then we are looking for you! I would like to invite you for a no-obligation introductory meeting. I will be absent from Friday, June 7, and will be available again from Monday, July 1, 2024; If you respond during that period, it will take longer to receive a response.
