THE PROJECT

This project is an elderly home in Buenos Aires.. Its objective is to improve the life of elderly people living in elderly homes or other institutions. Men and women of the Jewish community live in this home; their ages range between approximately 70 and 101 years old. There is a group of residents that are able to pay for their stay, but there is also a large percentage of people that receive a grant in order to have access to the same facilities as the rest of the residents. In some particular cases people receive social benefits. The home employs professionals from all kinds of areas as well as pro-bono volunteers: in communication, in purchasing and services, in the medical area, in nursing, in nutrition, in maintenance, in administration, in social services, in fundraising and special events etc.


YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

The residents of this center have access to many different activities between Monday to Friday at various time slots, so for this reason your schedule as a volunteer is very flexible and differs daily and weekly. Some of the activities you may be asked to participate in include: occupational therapy, textile workshops, ceramics, drawing and painting, singing, computers, memory games, Burak, bingo, lottery, language classes and activities (in English, Yiddish, and Hebrew), yoga, storytelling, cooking, music, gardening, Jewish history and Rikudim (Israeli dances). You will work along side a team of professionals who have developed activities based on medical and therapeutic objectives. As well, the team accepts creative ideas from residents as well as any innovations you may come up with.


WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

We are looking for social volunteers who are willing to commit to a minimum of 4 weeks to this project with at least an intermediate level of Spanish (you can book a Spanish language/cultural immersion course prior to starting your project). There are activities that volunteers do not need any prior experience or education, however for others, (occupational therapy for example) previous knowledge/experience is required. For this volunteer program, enthusiasm, compassion and sensibility are desired qualities.
