Descripción del proyecto:
Hydon Hill is a nursing home for physically disabled adults located in the Surrey Hills roughly an hour away from London by train travel. We provide support and nursing care for physically disabled adults in a friendly and safe home. Overseas volunteers help support our staff teams in providing an active, involving and stimulating environment for our residents. Through our overseas volunteers, disabled people in our care homes are able to access their local community services and social opportunities more easily and regularly, thus improving their independence and quality of life. This means that in their roles overseas volunteers are engaging in a wide range of activities both inside and outside the home.
Alojamiento, manutención, transporte etc.:
Hydon Hill sits in a beautiful rural location outside Godalming in Surrey. Guildford is within easy reach, with its fantastic range of shopping, culture and leisure options. Volunteers will be accommodated in a Chalet that contains 5 bedrooms, a shower and toilet room, a bathroom and a separate toilet room. The Chalet has a communal kitchen and living room complete with washing machine and free Wi-Fi. The Chalet is separate but on-site with Hydon Hill and other similar chalets for our support staff.
Formación durante el proyecto:
Thorough training on working with vulnerable adults is provided to all our volunteers, and Leonard Cheshire Disability staff helps volunteers during the induction process to understand each individual. Risk assessments ensure that volunteers are not asked to contribute outside of their capability or boundaries. Volunteers acquire a range of knowledge, skills and experience including a greater understanding of the issues affecting disabled people. They gain improved interpersonal skills and the ability to interact with a wide range of people.
Perfil del voluntario:
This is a year-long placement and volunteers are expected to commit to the service for the whole duration of their project. Volunteers are not to take part in activities that are staff tasks, they therefore will not be assisting with eating and drinking or taking part in personal care. We are looking for volunteers who are positive, friendly and energetic. Energetic volunteers provide us with the ability to inject some life into our environment: many of our clients are mobility impaired and having volunteers surrounding them who move well helps encourage our clients to get involved.
