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 study Urban Area Development. By means of various television appearances, among which the one at TedX Amsterdam, I wish to contribute to the relationship with the elderly, and to be a good neighbour to them.

A dancing weirdo or someone who dances weird, those are the correct ways to describe me. Apart from the dancing, I study Communication Management at the HAN University of Applied Science in Arnhem.
