Hogar Santiago Crespo: Senior citizens

This is a home for senior citizens especially those who come from very modest families or have no one to care for them.  The hogar provides all sorts of recreational and therapeutic services as well as a loving environment for the residents.  The volunteer could work in the development of activities and depending on their background in services such as physiotherapy.  One of the most important aspects of this ministry will be simply being present and engaging the seniors in conversation in a manner that expresses respect, care and love for seniors.  The ministry at this site does not require any specific skills except an open heart and generous spirit towards our elders.  This site could be of special interest to students interest in healthcare, social work, psychology , gerontology and physiotherapy.
