The volunteer should be able to work with old people who are often forgetful and timid because they don’t know what will happen with them. He/she should also be creative to develop what our clients have already forgotten but what will return them to their youth. We will also demand some self-sufficiency from him/her. Communication is a key element of our work. It is possible to communicate these languages in our organization: Czech, English, German, Spain, Croatian or Italien.
