Summary

Do you like to take a walk? Due to a lack of care, many elderly people cannot go out as often as they would like.

Detailed description

Today you will go outside with the residents of nursing home De Eshoeve. You accompany the residents while walking by pushing a wheelchair or walking arm in arm. There is also a side-by-side tandem, where you can pedal together or pedal alone.

While walking you can have a nice chat with the residents.

In bad weather you are still welcome to play a game or have a chat with the residents while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea.


Target group & impact

The residents of the Albatros department at the De Eshoeve nursing home that you will be taking for a walk are elderly people with dementia. It is therefore possible that they repeat themselves during a conversation or sometimes do not remember. It is important with these elderly that you take the time for this.

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, the elderly come into contact with other people less. You can change that by going for a walk outside with these elderly!


Location

Nursing home De Eshoeve is located in the Belgian Park in Scheveningen. Elderly people with dementia live in this nursing home, who are no longer able to live at home because of this. Upon arrival you can report to Louise Elcock.
