About the volunteering opportunity

For a 68-year-old woman from Ukraine is at short notice a trustworthy volunteer sought, who can help during the week in everyday life and has fluent language skills in Russian / Ukrainian. It is about bridging a waiting period for a home help, which is applied for through the health insurance. The woman receives help on the weekend from a volunteer who also initiated this request and the household help.

Your Tasks

The woman currently lives in a residence of the DRK in Grünau. She has a new apartment in the Antonienstraße 22. Due to several accidents in the Ukraine (with the bike) she has problems with walking and needs support especially for shopping. The new apartment is located directly at the city park Großzschocher, so that perhaps small walks in connection with small errands would be very nice, as well as help in arriving in this new apartment, move a few pieces of furniture, sort something, get missing items together.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, advanced German skills are required.

  • Language skills in Russian or Ukrainian are required to ensure fluent communication at eye level,
  • trusting,
  • patient,
  • open to assistance while walking (holding on the arm),
  • respectful interaction

Time required

On weekdays, during the day, at night

Requested assignment time: 2x per during the week, about 2 hours
