The ‘Santa Maria’ public service corporation is a non-profit body offering welfare services, whose Mission is to provide both residential (Nursing Home, Care Home) and semi – residential services (Elderly Day Care Centre, podiatrist, counselling service) to elderly people. These are especially intended for elderly or disabled people, for internal as well as external users. At the moment, the facility hosts 143 users. The guest must be at the centre of our philosophy, therefore we do our best to: 1/Provide outstanding person-centered care through a high quality tailored service in a neat and tidy environment. 2/Create an organizational climate, promote the team’s well-being, ensure continuing professional and organizational development aimed at achieving innovation; 3/Be an organization that learns and encourages the lifelong learning of its members; 4/Be open and receptive to the territory’s needs. — Role and Tasks of the volunteers: In the HO the volunteers have their own ?tutor? – a person who helps him/her with the integration process in the working place (task support). The tutor is one of the animators at the Hosting. Standard activities (coordinated by the staff) are: ? Collaborating in preparing meals and, in the case of non-self-sufficient residents, helping to administer/distribute drinks and food; ? Participating in existing entertainment and/or workshops (song, manual activities, photographs, painting, reading, gardening, etc.) oriented towards the structure’s residents; ? Collaborating in the rehabilitative and therapeutic program (soft gym, gymnastics for the elderly, physiotherapy); ? Accompanying residents to external centers, and/or dispatching commissions (shopping); ? Accompanying residents on holidays, local trips, and residential holidays by the sea or in the mountains (also extended); ? Participating in team meetings; ? Participating in formative and monitoring/supervisory meetings, geared either towards volunteers or staff.
Board and Lodging: Meals are generally taken at the canteen of the structure, together with the staff. Accomodation: The volunteer at Azienda Publica will live in a ensile room with a private bathroom on the 4th floor of the building. Language opportunity (Language Course): According to our experience, we suggest the volunteers to start a short course of Italian before leaving, only if possible. This could be useful for the first period in Italy. Wi -Fi is available
