About the volunteering opportunity

For our senior homes and residential communities for the elderly and dementia patients throughout Berlin, we are looking for volunteers for the voluntary visiting service, who read aloud, listen, go for a walk, do handicrafts, play.

It is about giving time and an open ear to the elderly or dementia patients. In our mobile society, relatives often no longer live in the same place and residents are happy to have visitors. In addition, you can also engage in the field of housekeeping.

We offer:

  • Reimbursement of expenses,
  • accident and liability insurance,
  • free training,
  • initiation and professional support,
  • on request written evidence of voluntary commitment.

Your Tasks

  • Free time activities,
  • Visiting services,
  • Accompaniments depending on the arrangement

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, basic German skills are required.

Desire for dealing with elderly or dementia patients, empathy and sensitivity

Where?

youngcaritas Berlin

The youngcaritas Berlin belongs to the Caritasverband für das Erzbistum Berlin e.V. and promotes young people's commitment. Our goal is to introduce young people to politically and socially "explosive" topics and to teach them a more attentive and conscious use of environmental resources, both through theoretical input and through practical implementation. The goal of youngcaritas Berlin is to win as many young people as possible for voluntary work, be it for the youngcaritas projects "Kulturbuddys", *vergissmeinnicht* or through counselling and placement in various institutions and projects.
