Context of the ASSB

The “Azienda Servizi Sociali di Bolzano” (ASSB) is a public institution, which coordinates and manages the social services offered in Bolzano's territory. Volunteers may be involved in one of the following structures for elderly:

  • Villa Armonia
  • Villa Europa and “Casa di riposo Don Bosco”
  • Villa Serena
  • Clinica Santa Maria
  • Premstallerhof
  • Day center for elderly in Villa Europa

Proposed activities

Volunteers will collaborate with the staff of nursing homes mainly with recreational and entertainment activities planned for the elderly. In particular volunteers will be involved in the following activities:

  • organizing recreational activities for the elderly/handicapped people,
  • talking to them,
  • reading something,
  • participating in some excursions of one or more days,
  • making different kind of purchases (e.g. food, medicine for the guests),
  • support of the educators in the activities of assistance,
  • care and rehabilitation,
  • accompanying the elderly with walking difficulties,
  • participating in the evaluation meetings
