About the volunteering opportunity

Various support in the night café for elderly people

In an inpatient day care facility for senior citizens, volunteers for the night café are searched, who help to design, accompany and prepare and follow up the offer. The night café takes place from Monday to Friday from 6 p.m. to midnight and is aimed at dementia patients but also at people without dementia. This offer was established to offer an evening offer to senior citizens whose day-night rhythm is disturbed. Among other things, readings can be held, films can be shown, games evenings can be organized and in the summer also offers in the garden (outside) can be used. The institution is looking forward to new ideas and suggestions!
