Many elderly people are not able to get outside of their houses due to a lack of helping hands. They would love to feel the wind in their hair and the sun on their face. Would you like to give them a wonderful afternoon? This activity does not take long so whenever you have a free spot in you schedule it is easy to participate. As a volunteer you will pick up the elderly at their residence, push the wheelchair and have a nice chat while walking. Your help is very much appreciated so you are more than welcome to join this activity.

Focus group & impact 

The residents' well-being is priority for Carel van den Oever and as a volunteer you can make a valuable contribution. Be prepared that the elderly do everything at a different pace than you are used to. It is also possible that not all of the residents speak English very well. It is important that you take your time with them. Some of the elderly suffer from dementia and it can be hard to communicate with them. If you take this into account, both the elderly and you will enjoy the afternoon a lot!


The residences of residential care center Carel van den Oever lays in the city district Escamp, a quiet neighboorhoud with a lot of nature. In Carel van den Oever elderly live whom need intensive care in a protected environment 24 hours a day.
