Share some of your time with us

We offer various possibilities. We encourage anyone who is interested in volunteering, be they young or old, experienced at dealing with the elderly or not. Whether in full-time employment, studying, still at school, unemployed or retired, or with children, dogs or wheelchairs - all are welcome.

Look forward to new experiences and the joy and gratitude of our residents to whom you devote your time and attention.

Volunteering with us

Volunteering projects

Volunteering is a top priority at MÜNCHENSTIFT. That's why we look forward to hearing from people interested in volunteering.

Social Day

Social engagement for companies and organisations - team up with employees to do good.

Just being there

Sometimes that's all that's needed. Spend an hour or so a week with our residents. Have a chat over a cup of coffee, read to residents in the sunny garden, or enjoy a stroll in the grounds. Our residents have experienced so much that they have a lot to share and for you to discover. To make sure that you feel at ease, our volunteering coordination officer will seek a resident best matched to you personally, and will be there when you get to know each other. Many long friendships have been forged in this way. We are confident that we will find a great person for you too.

You're just what we're looking for

  • Empathy: You can put yourself in the position of elderly and, in some cases, sick people, show compassion and understanding.
  • Equanimity: Sometimes, everyday things take a little longer and don’t always pan out. Take your time and be patient.
  • Humour: Nothing connects more than laughing together.
  • Reliability: Having regular visitors is what makes our residents happy.
  • B2 language proficiency: For the safety of our residents, it is important that you can communicate well with our care staff.

5½-week program

You only have a few weeks at a time to volunteer? No problem! If you are a student or young adult with only a few weeks to volunteer, our 5½ week program is for you. The program is two hours per week, spread over 5½ weeks. During the programme, you can expect:

  • A personal contact person and competent support while you are with us
  • A designated task that is tailored to your interests and the needs of our residents
  • On completing the programme, a certificate recording your voluntary work

We look forward to hearing from you. Please contact us and together, we will find out how best to help and support you.
