Acompanhamento a os Idosos, Cordoba, Argentina

You are the one who can assure these children to have the chance to grow up safe and healthy.

This retirement home has one important ambition: providing a good old day to all the seniors living in its establishment. Volunteers are invited to keep the elderly company, to organize entertainment and to assist the staff with their daily duties. The elders that live here have been abandoned by their families and don’t have economic resources. They are not included in the system and the Home is a refuge for them. The staff works hard at providing the elders with all the facilities and services for them to live there. The centre does not receive any help from other institutions or professionals; that is why, volunteers are always welcome. The organization works actively to improve the quality of volunteer activities within the institution encouraging daily contact with the elderly. Volunteers must choose from the list of proposed activities that they wish to do with the elders and may suggest or implement new ones, as long as the situation allows it. Some of the activities that the center proposes are making homemade bread and desserts and creating all kinds of crafts like greetings cards, collages and dough modelation. They’ll also like it if you can provide physical activities like relaxation, coordination and elongation exercises or any outdoor activity such as cleaning the yard and working on the vegetables garden. You can also spend a nive time with the elederly by reading books to them or playing board games or simply telling them about your life at your home country and you life story. This can make them feel comfortable enough to tell you about their lives.

Join this project and make the difference!

Old and wise, but sometimes feeling lonely: that is how many seniors describe their old day. The aged are looking for heartwarming friendships and someone to chit chat with. Taking care of them is one of the most rewarding jobs that anyone can do. It means offering help; wherever and whenever needed, no matter how insignificant the task may appear to be. Who deserves our help more than the elderly? If you were able to walk on and elder person’s shoes just for a little while you would understand their feeling of despair when they try to do things that their bodies don’t let them any more. Add to that the fact that they are alone and that’s enough for them to feel hopeless. Volunteers will help by reading, cooking, serving, creating fun games and playing with them, doing exercises, taking a walk with them, massaging, helping to feed, teaching bakery, handcrafts etc. Volunteers are also expected to assist in various administrative tasks. Senior citizens are grateful for this companionship and attention provided by volunteers because it makes them feel important and special. If you have love and compassion for the old people and want to make a meaningful contribution by making their life worth living, then this project needs the helping hands of volunteers like you.
