With co-operation from the Commission Hoogvliet, JC Dragon’s Heart Foundation Europe has started a new project in Hoogvliet.
The project is called ‘’Home Madelief’’ and is located at: Tini’s Healing Zonnecentrum, address: Bovensim 148, hoek Zetangel, Zalmplaat, Hoogvliet.
The target group are elderly people who live independent, alone, and have little or no social contacts. We invite those people to get together and spend a morning with us in ‘’Home Madelief’.
We offer them an enjoyable talk and a sympathetic ear with coffee, tea, and some cake. They can borrow books from our mini library, watch movies, or play games. We also arrange short trips for them, to the Christmas market for example. Everything is in consultation with the people themselves and is free.
We started small, and for now the intention is to meet every first Tuesday of the month between 10.00 and 12.00. We hope to expand it to twice a month in the future.
As there are many facilities for the elderly in North-Hoogvliet, we only invite people who live in South-Hoogvliet owing to the shortage of facilities for the elderly, this includes Zalmplaat, Boomgaardshoek.
We opened on 2 September 2014 and everyone has agreed how much they’ve enjoyed it.
We would like to thank the Residents’ Initiative for their contribution enabling us to start this project.
