Community Care Placements in Japan
Duration: from 6 Months to 6 Months
Caring placements will involve working in Leonard Cheshire Homes and homes for the elderly as well as in centres dedi9cated to the care of those with disabilities. Volunteers form strong relationships with the people they help to care for and their help is greatly valued by both the staff and patients. The Japanese emphasise the benefits of a stimulating, interesting environment and there is always much activity to motivate the residents including day trips, cookery, arts and crafts or drama. Our volunteers are always warmly welcomed and valued. There is also the option of working in a community care centre where volunteers will play with young children, talk to the elderly and make friends with adolescents at the centre.
