September 2018 for 10 months
Deadline 15 April
The Home Cauzid is situated in a fully renovated building with 2 levels, in the middle of a park with ornament and fruit trees (cherry, apricot, fig, plum and grape trees), as well as a place for farm animals (donkey, goat and sheep).
The home is meant in the first place to host elderly people in need and who cannot be taken in charge at home anymore.
The Home has a capacity of 80 places, including a unit (12 places) reserved for psycho dependant persons and two temporary accommodation places.
The volunteer will accompany the residents in the care centre and will contribute to the autonomy of the elderly people in the Home by creating social connections.
He will accompany the Home’s animator and the voluntary workers in their activities with sick and dependant people.
Several types of support of the elderly people will be proposed to the volunteer.
One of the most important aspects of the elderly people’s support is the preservation and the recreation of intergenerational links. In this context, the volunteer will give his time for regular conversation meetings, for walks in the park or for helping the elderly persons carrying their books or their documents.
Another aspect is the fight against loneliness. The volunteer will take care of the Home’s magazine; will propose cultural activities and recreational activities.
