  • Descrição


    We are Jan and Marian. Dutch from origine, both over 60 years old, living in New Zealand since 2007. We are living in a traditional New Zealand homestead in the middle of our community, of nearly 2600m2. The property has a flower garden and vegetable patch, a large workshop and animals to take care for. Our dream came through, to prepare this place for visitors with mild Dementia, based on Dutch models of care.
    This is a community-based day-care facility aiming to bring pride, joy and respect to people in their early stages of Dementia by inspiring and supporting them to use their skills in a homely, social environment.
    We need help maintaining the garden and workshop and in the house. We try to use recycled materials when possible.
    We have a lovely Huntaway dog, Bella and a great bunch of chooks and looking for other animals.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We are Dutch:) in New Zealand. The ‘model of care’ is based on the Dutch model of social approach for people with Dementia. The day visitors coming here, all have some sort of memory loss, are mobil. love to work in the kitchen, garden, workshop etc using their long learned skills, doing ordinary things and enjoy company. "You do not see the difference between the visitors and workers" and we hope to guide you along the way of De-stigmatising dementia, if you not already are aware of this. We are fully imbedded in the New Zealand culture / community. You might meet interesting people of all kinds. We are nurses as well as artists in: Pallet/ wood art, painting, funky ideas. You can upgrade your garden and DIY skills, or show us yours.
    You might be able to help us setting up flyers and other PR material. We could introduce you to Toastmasters to enhance your public speaking and leadership skills.
    We are also grandparents of 6 ‘far away’. You might be open to see how we handle this to have good contact with our family oversees.
    The base of all we are and do is our christian faith.
    As you read certainly no dull moment here.
