SummaryDo you enjoy going for a walk? Every Thursday morning there is a walking club at WZH Bezuidenhout.
During this activity you take the residents outside for a nice walk and a breath of fresh air. The elderly visibly enjoy the walk and you help them to have a pleasant morning. As a volunteer you first help to collect the elderly from their home. Of course you will get help with this from a permanent employee. During the walk you take care of an elderly person and you push the wheelchair or support someone while walking. In the meantime you have a nice chat with each other.
If the weather is against you, you are still welcome to come and drink a cup of coffee or tea with the residents, have a nice chat and possibly play a game.
Target group & impact
People who need intensive care 24 hours a day live in a protected environment at WZH Bezuidenhout. These can be people with dementia or people with physical conditions. The residents love to take a walk through the Haagse Bos, and your help is essential. The more volunteers, the more residents can go outside.
This nursing home is located on the edge of the Haagse Bos in the pleasant Bezuidenhout district. WZH Bezuidenhout offers different types of care, from small-scale living and dementia care to day treatment.
