Woman (53 yrs) is looking for a better quality of life and would like a conversation buddy
She doesn't want to bother her daughters or others with her problems, but she does like to talk about herself every now and then. But it certainly doesn't have to be just heavy conversations. She is energetic, lively and broadly interested. Besides her dog and 2 cats, she has several terrariums as a hobby.
But sometimes she has bad periods and she doesn't take good care of herself and her environment. She suffers from type 1 diabetes and she can walk for up to half an hour without pain. But she likes a short walk. She is looking for a female conversation partner at a fixed time of the week. Who offers her this moment of the week to look forward to?
- you are open-minded, don't judge easily
- you are a good listener
- you can take initiative and especially let the other take the initiative
- you enthuse, encourage, but do not direct.
What can you offer the volunteer?:
- link to a participant with whom it clicks
- expert guidance and support
- an enthusiastic volunteer team
- mutual exchange of experiences
- internal training, team consultation and meeting meetings.
What makes the work worthwhile?:
As a buddy you really make a difference for a fellow human being. Together you do fun, positive things, which the participant needs and from which you both get pleasure and satisfaction. The contact with the participant is also an enrichment for your own life.
