Job description

The volunteers are the ones who provide care to the terminal patient and support the caregivers. In principle, their tasks do not differ from those of the informal carers. They are supplementary to that care, insofar as the informal care provider is not (any longer) able to fully complete the care towards the end of life. Informal carers and volunteers do have different legal responsibilities and powers. The basic principle here is that the volunteer does not perform any medical or nursing activities.
Time, attention and support are keywords in the volunteer's work.

We ask

Anyone who thinks they can mean something to people in the last phase of their lives is welcome as a volunteer at De Mantelmeeuw. The De Mantelmeeuw Foundation is looking for volunteers who - after training - can support the dying and their families in people's homes or in the hospice on Meeuwenlaan. Home also includes other forms of living.
Volunteers (m/f) do not need to have any special previous education.
The volunteer is expected to participate in an introductory course. You can register via this site.

What can we offer the volunteer?

The De Mantelmeeuw Woerden Foundation asks every volunteer to undergo basic internal training that is in line with working as a volunteer in palliative terminal care and in which the above aspects come to the fore, before they can be deployed as a volunteer.
In addition, regular refresher courses will be offered as needed and in consultation.
The organization also offers various volunteer meetings to evaluate the care provided and theme evenings. Once a year a volunteer outing is organized and at the beginning of the year there is a New Year's meeting.

Time commitment: 4-8 hours a week
