Neighborhood help: on 15. May on bavarian television

The idea for this kind of help had gerda mertig. The 63-year-old trained nurse, who is in semi-retirement, would like the people in the village to be able to grow old as well.

"If you don’t come, i’ll have to move to my daughter’s place or home," a man she has been coaching for some time told her. This statement accelerated the considerations of what could be done in the village for the people, the 63-year-old says.

"Now we are twelve women and three men between the ages of 35 and 70," says mertig happily. They are available for various things on a voluntary basis, i.E. Free of charge. "We don’t do any care and don’t want to compete with any care center or craftsman’s business", she assures.

Rather, it is a matter of minor help in the household, the smallest repairs that pose a problem in everyday life, help with grave maintenance, catering for birthdays or the hourly care of children or fellow citizens in need of help. "I like baking a cake, for example," says beate rabe. She can also give tips on dental issues.

Erich falk could help with the snow thumb or just come for a nice chat. It is important that both the people seeking help and their relatives agree.
