Great quality of living is essential, it creates happiness and felt-for times ! 

At work, with the great assistance of my helpful, friendly colleagues. I work mostly with the retired handicapped people at Lebenshilfe, always bringing fun and some worth while happy times with them through doing many different fun activities that suit their conditions and their potential capabilites! I have to speak German, and I try my best. The language is not a barrier , the people are friendly and appreciate my effort. I always I have to convince them to try out new things .  As I wish and make sure that they try new things each time we work together, encouraging self-trust and independence where possible.


Working on their leisure time is fun, as we do things like going for a walk near the Rhein, and get the nice view, or encourage them to walk by suggesting what they like , for instance its summer here, they like ice cream, and we would walk to buy the ice cream. Sometimes we play out games with those that can, or memory games to improve their memory. I also cooked with them a tyical South African dish , " Chaka-laka, smashed potatoes and wors ". it was great and they loved it !  I try even introducing them to some fitness activities ,and easy things like watering flowers in the house. 

Going out to eat in restuarants and /or go have a coffee somewhere in the near city or buy things  like crossword puzzles ( which one resident likes so much) adds up to their happy life at Lebenshilfe! 

This is important for them and they are loving it, we have a good relationship! !Limit 600x450 image
