Do you also enjoy being creative? Lots of seniors too! Today you are going to craft together with residents of nursing home De Eshoeve. You guide the residents while making crafts.

While enjoying a nice cup of coffee, you help the elderly with making their crafts. In this way you ensure a pleasant, creative morning in nursing home De Eshoeve. While crafting, we ensure that we adhere to the current corona measures at all times.
Target group & impact
The residents of the Residentie department at the De Eshoeve nursing home that you will be tinkering with are elderly people with a physical disability or illness that makes them dependent on nursing home care. This makes extra guidance during crafting pleasant and your contribution is very valuable! Loneliness is a major problem that increases with age. Nearly two-thirds of the over-85s feel lonely, which has many negative consequences. Due to the high workload on healthcare staff, the elderly are increasingly staying in their room all day. As a result, older people have less contact with other people. You can change that by crafting with these elderly people!
Nursing home De Eshoeve is located in the Belgian Park in Scheveningen. Elderly people with dementia live in this nursing home, who can no longer live at home because of this.
