Project description

The European volunteer will be mainly involved in the animation program of the Nursing Home "Pietro Zangheri" based in Forlì: he/she will integrate and support the experts’ work both in the practical and content arrangement of the activities. The volunteer will be invited to propose new activities or to develop those already existing, sharing his/her experiences, background and personal interests with the staff and the elderly. He/she will also support the staff in carrying out tasks such as meal distribution, help persons with moving difficulties, conversation, walking, listening etc. and by that establishing a relationship based on trust and mutual exchange with the elderly who will benefit from the presence of young people. At the same time, the participation in this project will allow the volunteer to acquire specific competencies in the animation field, and to interact with a new culture and language; all these elements will favour his/her personal and professional growth.


Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

Accommodation: the volunteer will share a flat in the Center of Forlì with other European Volunteers of the same project. The flat is provided with kitchen, washing machine and internet. The volunteer will have his/her own single room. Food: the volunteer will receive 100 euro per month to buy his/her own food. Local Transport: as the flat is near to the rest home, the volunteers will not need local transport.


Training during the project

The volunteer will participate to pre-departure training organized by the Sending Organisation and to trainings organised by the Italian National Agency usually at the beginning evs experience (on arrival training) and in the middle of the Service to a mid term evaluation.


Volunteer profile

It's very important to be flexible and accommodating with changes but also ready to be patient during the very regular life style of elderly into a Rest Home.
