The Roth-Haus is a home for mentally and physically impaired people. The Roth-Haus aims to enable them to develop their own resources and abilities. The work is focused on independence, mobility, responsibility and communication abilities of the residents.
There is a home and a workshop for the mentally and physically impaired people. The home is divided into four groups. A team of 6 to 10 professional co-workers attends to each group. Around 30 people live in the home. The age of the residents ranges from 18 to 70 years. In the workshop there are two groups of 24 people in total.
The volunteer tasks are:
Support of the disabled people in their free time and in their workplace (for example: doing groceries together, accompany them on excursions)
Collect experience in the area of pedagogical, custodial and organisational work
Work cooperatively and reliaby with the other staff of the very open-minded and supportive Roth-Haus team
Get to know the culture, the structure and the quality assurance processes in a residential home
It’s a hard physical and mental job, but it is also very rewarding!
