“Guidelines for the Work of Volunteer Services for the Elderly in Beijing” released

Original title: “Guidelines for Beijing Volunteer Service for the Elderly” released

Yesterday (5th) was the 37th International Volunteer Day. The Civil Affairs Bureau of the Social Work Committee of the Beijing Municipal Party Committee, the Capital Spiritual Civilization Office, the Communist Youth League Committee, and the Beijing Volunteer Service Federation launched the 2022 International Volunteer Day in the form of online live broadcast. The “Guidelines for Volunteer Services for the Elderly in Beijing” was released at the same time. The document clearly states that elderly care voluntary services should be guided by the needs of the elderly, and the young elderly will become an important force in this voluntary service.

Volunteering has played a huge role in meeting the diverse needs of the elderly. The work guidelines propose that, compared with general voluntary services, elderly care voluntary services have the characteristics of long-term and stability, which makes the elderly feel more secure. According to the work guidelines, the objects of voluntary service for the elderly are the elderly who need both physical and mental care. The service content should be oriented to the needs of the elderly. Volunteer service providers cover all age groups, and middle-aged, elderly and young people can participate. Since the younger elderly are relatively healthy, have more free time and energy, and have less “generation gap” problems, they can easily resonate with the elderly they care for, and will become an important force in the development of voluntary services for the elderly.

According to the needs and characteristics of elderly care volunteer service positions, elderly care volunteers are divided into ordinary elderly care volunteers and professional elderly care volunteers. Among them, ordinary elderly care volunteers are mainly engaged in voluntary services such as telephone visits, home visits, travel assistance, companionship and comfort; professional elderly care volunteers need to have certain professional knowledge or skills, mainly serving medical consultation, physical therapy rehabilitation, nursing guidance, Legal consulting and other positions. Volunteers need pre-job training before taking up their jobs.
