Seniorville Jablonové

Seniorville Jablonové

As the name obviously reveals; Seniorville Jablonové is a Seniorville. 60 seniors are living in this facility outside of Bratislava in a small city called Jablonové. Among the seniors English, German, Hungarian and Slovak is spoken. The daily structure changes monthly or weekly, depending on the activity. Here is an example of how the day could look like:

9:00AM: daily preparation

10:00AM: 'exercising' in terms of meeting and talking

11:00AM: activity of the day (changes daily), when I was there it was a spiritual activity so like praying or remembering the ancestors

12:00PM: lunch (after lunch: rest)

03:00PM: minimum of 1 ½ hours, like brain training, singing or art therapy

after dinner: free time which can be used for watching TV or playing games etc.

The team of Seniorville Jablonové doesn't set any events for the weekends because this time is totally free for family or friends to come to visit their family members. Volunteers are mostly wanted to do personal work like offering private talk for the clients or going for a walk; planning activities and so on. But one thing which really became obvious when talking to one of the social worker was that you can't e shy or unsure with the concept but determined and open-minded. Quite a few clients also suffer under dementia so as a volunteer you have to be patient too but in most cases you won't notice the disease. But of course there also is non-personal work like gardening or drawing where you can join the Seniorville Jablonové team!

So if you are a reliable and friendly person willing to speak to elderly people don't hesitate and sign up today!
