AFS Colombia offers you various opportunities to work with elderly people in different cities in Colombia. Often the elderly come from poorer backgrounds and are left without families that take care of them. The mission is to serve the residents in the last phase of their life by providing them a loving and good care and you can help. Your activities include occupation of the residents in form of different activities (paint, play games, walks etc.), physical activities and therapy, as well as everyday care and assistance. You will also support the local staff in its daily routine such as doing beds, washing dishes, folding laundry, going to the market.
For this kind of projects, you need to be dedicated and extremely caring and interested in helping the elderly and providing them with a good and dignified atmosphere.
