SummaryLooking for a positive hiking buddy who also likes a game of cards.
As a buddy you can really make a difference in the lives of our clients. They often live in a small world with few family or friends. Loneliness is lurking. But as a buddy you can break through this and let people participate in society again. Simply by doing fun things together and 'being there'.
We are looking for a friendly and positive buddy for a calm, intelligent and honest man of almost 70 years old. This man lives in Southeast Nijmegen and has a small network. He would really like a buddy to do fun things together.
This man is not much of a talker, but he does enjoy company. He enjoys going for walks, following football and playing cards. Those are also things he would like to do with a buddy.
What are you going to do?
It's up to you to decide exactly what you're going to do. But think for example of:
- To walk
- nice talking
- Going out every now and then, for example to the forest or to a park
Who are you?
- you are sociable and easy going
- you are open in life and do not judge quickly
- you are a good listener, but you are also able to keep the conversation going
- you are reliable
- you can take initiative and are able to enthuse someone
- you are available for one part of the day per week for one year. One half day every two weeks is also possible. Times are of course in consultation.
After you register as a buddy, there will be an introductory meeting where we would like to hear from you who you are, what your hobbies are and what makes you happy. Together we will see if the above client is a good fit for you. Then we arrange a first meeting. If it clicks from both sides, you've found your buddy!
What do you get in return?
Of course you also get a lot in return for your enthusiastic efforts. This way you experience how fun and meaningful it is to work for our client. But we also ensure that you can carry out your volunteer work without any worries. We provide good guidance, training, insurance, clear agreements laid down in a volunteer agreement and a small volunteer fee.
