長青工作隊


機構式服務

長青工作隊成立於民國91年,初期的服務以機構式的服務為主,服務位於北屯區的『長生老人長期照護中心』,服務內容有辦理慶生會,將歡樂與青春氣息感染給院內安養的長者;此外還有個別關懷老人家的身心,陪老人家聊天、幫他們按摩。

社區式服務

九十三年起長青工作隊由機構式的服務改為社區式的服務,服務於台中市莒光社區,社區中有八百多為六十五歲以上的長者,獨居老人約四十多位。

保健養生,歡樂人生

工作隊開設保健養生班,以養生保健、腳底按摩、手工藝創作、美食天地、卡拉ok、瑜珈等課程教導老人家如何自我保養與照顧,另外也安排慶生會、宗廟之旅、文化之旅、母親節、端午節活動、長青快樂營等動態活動,並每週造訪、關懷此社區之獨居老人,遇有需轉介個案,則通報里長、社會局及相關社服單位協助。藉由各種動、靜態的活動,引導老人家走出幽暗、孤獨的角落、活絡筋骨,重新接觸人群,以減少老人痴呆、憂鬱、自閉、自殺等情形。

人口老化,是許多國家正在面臨的問題,非都市地區,因年輕人大量外移,造成更嚴重的老人問題。崇仁文教基金會長青工作隊,帶著大學青年志工,投入偏遠地區,主動關懷老人。 Aging of population is the problem now many countries are facing. Moving out of young people from the rural areas results in more serious aging problems. Team of Chong-Ren Cultural and Educational Volunteers for the Elders leads college volunteers to devote themselves into caring for the elderly in remote areas. 建立一個老安少懷的儒家社會是崇仁文化教育基金會創辦人陳鴻珍女士的願望,九二一大地震過後,崇仁文化教育基金會為投入災區重建工作,設立長青工作隊。 Establishing a Confucian society where the young and the old are well cared, is the goal of Ms. Chen Hongzhen, the founder of Chong-Ren Cultural and Educational Foundation. In the aftermath of the 921 earthquake, CRCEF devoted into the reconstruction work and established Voluntary for the Elders Team. 每月一次固定到災區出訪,除了運送各地愛心捐贈的物資之外,長青志工隊更積極安排社區服務活動,並對行動不便的長者進行居家訪問工作。 Voluntary Team visits the struck areas once a month. Besides distributing goods from everywhere, the Team actively arranges community service and home visits to physically disabled elders. 社區服務除了為老人們帶來歡笑,也安排結合音樂的大肢體伸展動作,減緩老人肌肉萎縮,活動中也會宣講有關健康及反詐騙等安全課程。居家訪問,則由志工分組做家戶拜訪,與老人們聊天的過程,傾聽老人的心聲,並為老人的生活帶來新的刺激。 Community service not only brings laughter to the elderly, but slows down their muscular dystrophy through musical stretching exercises. In the service, speeches about health and fraud prevention are also provided. Home visits are carried out by grouping volunteers. Through the visits, they listen to the elderly attentively, and bring new motivations to them. 目前固定服務的地區為南投國姓鄉石門村、長流村與台中市莒光新城,自2001年至2010年共有5678位志工投入崇仁文教基金會長青工作隊的服務,參與服務的大學生志工也在服務的過程中,學習到陪伴老人的技巧,並更懂得珍惜與家人相處時光。 Up to now, regular services are in Shimen and Chang-Liu Villages in Guosing Township of Nantou and Jyuguangshinchen in Taichung. From 2001 to 2010, there have been 5678 volunteers devoting into the team service.
