The living students of Humanitas
In the elderly home of Humanitas Deventer, there are 6 students, living with the elderly. The first student arrived in 2016, around the date of Christmas. The living students are also responsible for a good living environment for our residents and are free to live the life they want to live, freely: they really live in our elderly care home. They make sure that they spend 30 hours each month on being a “good neighbour” to our residents. One student hosts the evening meal in our restaurant ‘t Proathuus every day of the week, but this is just an example of the great things they do for our residents. Their vibrant lives really colour the daily living of the elderly. Apart from neighbours, the students and residents became very good friends, with a deep and meaningful relationship that gives both sides a great deal of positivity and support.
They decide at what time they come home at night. But there is one important rule: the residents may not be disturbed.
I have been living in Humanitas since February ’20 and I am enjoying it very much. I have just finished the Pabo and am now starting a training to become a child coach. In addition, I love to play sports, I like to play games and I like fun and cheerfulness around me!
I have been living in Humanitas since September 2020. I really enjoy my neighbors and I really enjoy it here. Take a walk now and then, play people-annoy you, do the shopping and often have a nice chat in the rooms. What I find special is to be able to hear all the beautiful life experiences. Sometimes it seems like I'm going back in time. For my education I study applied psychology at the Saxion in Deventer. I plan to continue my studies so that I can eventually become a GZ psychologist. In addition, I danced at a professional level and play the saxophone.
Have been able to experience many fun moments together with the elderly at Humanitas Deventer. For my study Tourism Management I spent half a year in South Africa. This house is a very nice home for young and old
I came to live in Humanitas in April and it has been a great experience so far. In addition to being a good neighbor, I'm busy with the last year of the chemistry course at the Saxion in Deventer.
I have been living with Humanitas since September 2020. Watch football with the residents, eat a kebab sandwich, cook together or have a laugh together. This has led to beautiful friendships. The great thing is that there is a big age difference between me and my neighbors, but that's no reason why friendships can't develop. In addition to being a residential student at Humanitas, I study nursing at the saxion in Deventer. My ultimate dream is to eventually work on the ambulance.
I came to live here in December 2020 and in that one month that I lived here I had a whole new fun experience with the elderly around me and together we make it a good time. I do people a great favor with it, and it never ceases to amaze me how much fun it is. While the age difference is quite big. In addition to Humanitas, I do the training service helping plus.
