SummaryAs a mentor you stand up for the care interests of an adult client with an intellectual or psychiatric disability or with dementia.
You have regular personal contact with your client and you support him or her in making decisions in care and well-being. For example, about the living situation or about whether or not to vaccinate or operate. You act as a legal representative and maintain contact with the care providers and carers. Responsible and meaningful work that really makes a difference!
For example, for 75-year-old Carla, who is wheelchair-bound and unable to speak. However, Carla sees and understands a lot, which makes it possible to build a good contact. She is very happy with visits and especially with a walk outside.
Or for Johan of 58, with the mental age of a young child. Johan likes fixed patterns and likes to take a ride in the car. It is often difficult to estimate what he does and does not understand, but by empathizing with him as much as possible, you can make the right choices in care and well-being for him.
The mentorship is a legal protective measure, which is assigned by the court. The Northwest Midden Mentorship Foundation is appointed by the judge for this purpose. As a voluntary mentor you will start working for this foundation and you carry out the mentorship with a mandate. The foundation trains, supports and guides you in your role as a mentor.
