Providing advice and support at the Dementia Line

The DementiaLijn of Alzheimer Nederland is a helpline, especially for people with dementia and their informal caregivers. Life with dementia is complicated and always presents you with new challenges. Then it is nice to be able to ask your questions to an expert, or simply to be able to tell your story to someone who understands what it is like to live with (someone with) dementia. In addition to all online options for information exchange, a 1-on-1 conversation remains of great value. Fortunately, many people know where to find the Dementia Line. They often call with a specific question about their loved one's care, but also to let off steam, express concerns or talk freely. How you can help Are you a professional (higher professional education/university education) in care for people with dementia (for example as a case manager or psychologist) and do you want to use your knowledge and experiences for others who need it? Then this challenging volunteer position at the DementiaLijn is definitely something for you! What you're going to do As a volunteer, you provide advice and tips by telephone about dealing with dementia to informal caregivers and people with dementia. You are familiar with the activities of Alzheimer Nederland and can refer to other experts if necessary. You have broad knowledge about dementia and you can work at higher professional education level. You are available for a telephone service for half a day (4-5 hours) every week. You have a pleasant telephone voice and speak the Dutch language fluently. You work from home and have the opportunity to organize your time flexibly. With your efforts, you and the other volunteers can make an important contribution to supporting people with dementia and their loved ones. And that is meaningful and rewarding work! ''After working in healthcare for many years, I can now dedicate myself to the DementiaLijn. I am happy that my knowledge and experience are not lost this way.” Interested in making a difference in this way? Please feel free to contact me by sending me a message. We would like to hear from you!

Are you aware of the distinction between honey bees and wild bees? Honey bees reside in hives tended by beekeepers and produce honey. On the other hand, wild bees inhabit natural habitats and play a crucial role in pollinating plants and flowers, aiding in the growth of vegetables, fruits, and other edible crops. Despite there being 358 species of wild bees in the Netherlands, they are facing challenges... but fortunately, there's something we can do to help! Would you like to contribute by creating a Bee Hotel or Bee Bed & Breakfast in your garden for these vital pollinators? Sign up, and we'll guide you through the process of easily constructing your own bee B&B. This challenge is also a wonderful activity to enjoy with kids!

Tens of thousands of people will sleep in the cold tonight. Donate old sleeping bags and help the homeless through the night! Sheltersuit turns it into a wind and waterproof jacket with a zip-on sleeping bag, for anyone who is forced to sleep outside. ⚡ This is what you will do Every sleeping bag counts when you're literally out in the cold. So clean up your attic and that of others and collect all old sleeping bags. You can donate these at all Het Goed thrift stores in your area. Note: not every sleeping bag is usable. These are good: • Synthetic thick and thin sleeping bags; • Preferably washed and should be of somewhat good looking; • The zipper may be broken; • The liner must not be broken; • Down/wool sleeping bags cannot be donated, unfortunately. You can hand in your old sleeping bags with every acceptance of goods at one of the 28 thrift stores of Het Goed. 🌙 For this you make all the difference Sheltersuit helps homeless people and refugees who are forced to sleep outside. Due to the increasing demand from aid organizations at home and abroad, no less than 16,500 sleeping bags are needed. By handing in a sleeping bag to Het Goed you make it possible that our social workshops can continue to make Sheltersuits and thus create permanent work. Will you lend a hand? You really make a difference with it and it also makes your attic happy. Thank you in advance!

Sustainable showering [5 minutes]

Sustainable showering [5 minutes]

Long and hot showers... sometimes so wonderful, but it's not good for the planet, your skin and your wallet 😉. Gas is required to heat your shower water. The longer and hotter the shower, the more gas you use. On average, people in the Netherlands shower for about 8 minutes. If you were to shorten this to 5 minutes, you could save around 35 euros per year on your energy bill. This amount could increase significantly if you live with multiple people or if you tend to shower for longer than 8 minutes. ⁣ ⁣ So, it's time to step out of your comfort zone and join the sustainable showering challenge. ⁣ ⁣ 🌍 What are the benefits? Participating in this challenge is beneficial for your health, your wallet, and most importantly, for our planet. ⁣ ⁣ 🚿You can take individual action You can opt for a shorter shower, a cold shower, or simply shower less frequently. It's all possible. ⁣ ⁣ Click the 'I'm in' button below, and we'll provide you with excellent tips to reduce your gas consumption!
