Thomas Riedel, President Bärenmoos Commitee
GoalThe organization aims to give the residents as much control of their life as possible. It specializes in enabling young brain-injured adults to relearn skills necessary to cope with daily life.
Financial resultsThe Rotary Club Zurich Belvoir International supports the "Bärenmoos" with financial donations on a regular basis.
General information / hands-onMore importantly we support Bärenmoos with hands-on assignments like working at the "Bärenmoos-Beiz", a quarterly event where all residents can invite their family and friends for a themed dinner. We support the kitchen staff, by serving the food and helping with the cleaning up.
ReportIn addition to supporting the staff working for "Bärenmoos", it is also a bonding experience for our members and its residents and helps increase our understanding for what it means to be handicapped or being a caretaker of a loved one that is going through a rehabilitation process. Furthermore, our members take on individual assignments offering help with administration of bills and correspondence or accompanying a resident to the shops or on a walk.
