Many TKP Investments colleagues participate in the annual volunteer day organized by Aegon. Read about the results of their efforts below:
Connection at Maartenshof
Love was the theme during the volunteer day at Maartenshof this year, where they pulled off an actual wedding! A number of colleagues did their best to make this special day unforgettable for the “couple for a day”. They provided the decorations, prepared and served bites and drinks, and of course created a very festive atmosphere. It was clear from the beaming faces of the residents and bridal couple alike that the day was a great success.
Maartenshof in South Groningen specializes in providing complex care for specific conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, COPD and CVA (stroke). Among the many treatments carried out, Maartenshof treats Parkinson’s sufferers, while day treatments are also provided at this location for COPD patients. Maartenshof offers a great many facilities and plays a central role in the neighborhood. It is a small-scale and warm care facility.
Hard labour at De Mikkelhorst
Colleagues got down to hard labor this year at De Mikkelhorst, where bramble bushes and old fencing was removed to make this ecological farm-setting care facility (even) more appealing. The “laborers” did not even turn their noses up at helping move a pile of manure – at least, not figuratively!
About De Mikkelhorst:
De Mikkelhorst is a care facility in an ecological farm setting in the Oosterhaar neighborhood in Haren. De Mikkelhorst provides professionally organized daytime activities in a safe and positive environment. It also provides a peaceful setting, space and structure for people with intellectual (and physical) limitations, and people with psychological problems.
Patients’ day at the Martini Hospital
During “patients’ day” at the Martini Hospital in Groningen, the flowers were on display inside for a change. Patients in virtually all nursing departments were pleasantly surprised with their bouquets. There was also the opportunity to play board games, have books or magazines read aloud, or get a manicure. Most patients were mainly interested in some good company and a friendly ear, which our colleagues were happy to provide.
