Do you get energy from making others happy, do you like to take initiative, do you always have something to say, but are you also a good listener?
The residents of Raffy-De Leystroom are looking for you.

A VOG is necessary to be able to start as a volunteer within our organization.

THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL DO
After a non-binding conversation with the volunteer coordinator, an introduction to the resident's carer follows. She/he will introduce you to the resident. After this you can get acquainted with the resident and discuss what the wishes and needs are. You can agree on how often you will come. What you will do depends on the resident. Drinking a cup of coffee together, playing a game in the apartment or visiting the shopping center or taking a walk: it's all possible. You have regular contact with the resident's own carer.
At the moment we have several residents at our locations Raffy en de Leystroom (Breda) and Buurstede (Oosterhout) who are looking for a buddy. Feel free to contact us about this!

WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU GET
Are you someone who is patient, takes initiative, stands firm and above all respects the individuality of our residents? Does it appeal to you to become a buddy for a resident on an individual basis? You do not need any experience for this volunteer position, but it is nice if you want to learn what aging can entail.

The most important appreciation is to see and receive in return that as a volunteer you add something to the well-being of the resident/client. You are part of a team within Raffy-Lâle-Leystroom.
Together with your team, you look at how the most appropriate care can be provided to the resident. We also provide (additional) training or workshops in which you receive the right tools to properly carry out your volunteer task. You will also receive free coffee/tea during your volunteer work and a free bowl of soup is offered during lunch or you can purchase a meal at a discount.
