This afternoon you will be helping out by giving elderly from De Werf some extra attention by making some small talk and giving them handmassages. There will be experienced people who will give you instructions. For the residents this is an opportunity for some one-on-one contact and attention, something they do not often have. Will you lend us a hand with this activity?
De Werf is a residential care center for the elderly in Amsterdam West. The presence of you as a volunteer and personal attention is very much appreciated by the residents and the staff! They love it when volunteers come help out. Due to increasing cuts in health care, there is less and less staff available to supervise social activities. The residents of the elderly homes are no longer really enjoy personal attention. Be prepared that older people maintain a slower pace than you're used to.

De Werf is located at a beautiful waterfront location in Amsterdam West. If you go by public transport, please take tram 3, 12, 13 of 14 and get off at De Clerqstraat. It's only a 5 minute walk from here to the Van Reigersbergenstraat 829 in Amsterdam.
Please note that not all of the elderly can talk English very well. But they will very much enjoy your company. So if you think you are able to bridge the language gap, please do sign up.
