Description

Elderly care home “De Buitenhof” offers a living environment with care and comfort for seniors. It is located in a quiet green area in Amsterdam-Zuid and organizes many activities for its residents. Volunteers play a crucial role here: they improve the quality of the activities and increase the well-being of the residents. 

 

Project:

Some residents are no longer able to bike on their own. In this project, you take them biking on a so-called duo-bike. Besides being fun, biking gives the resident the exercise he or she needs. It also gives him or her the opportunity to chat with someone and get outside of their normal environment. Before starting the project, you get instructions and professional guidance from physiotherapist.
