Summary

An elderly lady, who likes to joke, is looking for a buddy to talk to about a variety of topics.

Detailed description

Mrs (76) has lost her husband not so long ago and therefore misses a buddy with whom she can do fun things.

She is not very mobile, but would like to go out with the wheelchair. Going to the market in Wageningen or Bennekom seems like a lot of fun. She can also enjoy herself at home, then you can knit or do puzzles together.

She is a very warm woman who is mainly looking for fun and is looking for a buddy who is not quick to judge.


Job requirements:

  • you are open-minded, don't judge easily
  • you are a good listener
  • you can take the initiative and give the other person room to take the initiative
  • you enthuse, encourage, but do not direct


What do you have to offer the volunteer:

  • link to a participant with whom it clicks
  • expert guidance and support
  • an enthusiastic volunteer team
  • mutual exchange of experiences
  • 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.
