About Stepping StonesWe are looking for volunteers for our beautiful villa Marianna in Apeldoorn!
We believe it is essential to make our residents feel at home. Well-being is a very important part of human health. For this we are looking for people who care about vulnerable elderly people and who have some time left to offer them some extra attention. What appeals to you? We would like to hear it!
Get started as a volunteer at Stepping Stones
Do you want an inspiring, meaningful and fun challenge? Then become a volunteer at Stepping Stones Villa Marianna. Whether you have a lot of time or little time, there is always something to do that suits you. As a volunteer you make a valuable contribution to the well-being of residents. Your listening ear and personal attention mean a lot to them. It is a meaningful leisure activity, which can give you a lot of satisfaction.
What are your wishes?
We think it is important that the work matches your qualities and the time you want to free up for it. That can be one day a week, but also a few hours a month. Of course you will be trained and you will receive all the information you need to be able to perform your tasks properly. If necessary, you will receive training about issues that you encounter when carrying out voluntary work. In short: we provide professional support, clear agreements and a volunteer agreement. The possibilities are very diverse!

Cooking / baking activity with (and for) our residents

Villa Marianna is located in the beautiful tree-lined neighborhood 'De Parken'. In this district you will find beautiful buildings of historical value, including that of Villa Marianna! This care villa has 12 apartments for residents with dementia, one of which is for a couple. Villa Marianna is pleasantly organized and protective. Residents quickly feel at home. That is also because we do a lot together and consult together. For example, about the food we prepare together. We play board games together and know each other really well. This creates a pleasant and safe family feeling.
Would you like to know more about the role as a volunteer or about other possibilities within the villa? Check out our website or apply directly by sending your CV to [email protected] stating: Volunteer Villa Marianna.
