2014 3/18 Morning Bingo with the Elderly + Afternoon Dog Walks (Beitou Area)

A double whammy! Thanks to I See Yoga by Leona, we will visit the Renji Senior Citizen Hospital for BINGO and head to Animals Taiwan afterwards. You can make it for one or both activities! I’m not sure at this point regarding the weather for a dog walk, however. As we approach Monday I’ll confirm with those who email me.

Language Proficiency: Level 1 (you don’t need to speak Mandarin to be able to help the folks fill out their bingo forms or to put an infectious smile on your face that will brighten someone’s day!)

Task: Smile and chat with the elderly, fill their tea mugs, help with BINGO (some cannot hear the numbers announced very well). Then we’re off to walk dogs at Animals Taiwan! Or you can just pet the dogs / cats as well. If it’s warm we might be able to wash a few of the canines.

09:20 HongShuLin MRT Station, exit 109:30 Meet up at Renji Hospital directly
09:50 – 11:00 BINGO!
11:00 – 11:15 Sharing
11:30 – 11:45 head on over to Animals Taiwan! A stone’s throw again.
11:45 – 13:00 Get to know the dogs, walk dogs, etc.

I can pick people up at HongShuLin MRT Station (exit 1) around 09:20; or meet directly at Renji Hospital, 153 ZhongZheng. East Road Sec. 2 (新北市淡水區中正東路二段153號) http://goo.gl/maps/Jz8mD When you enter the hospital, turn left and it’s the large room at the end.

Be sure to eat a big breakfast beforehand and we can possibly grab lunch together somewhere – or not? :) I do drop offs at Taipower Station in Shida afterwards. Contact me now to save a spot in the car! A 50 NT rideshare to split gas is appreciated.

*****
Want to brighten someone’s day, give back, or get some wisdom from your elders? Every third Tuesday of the month, we volunteer at the Zhuwei Renji Hospital. These Tuesdays are Bingo Party Days! We can spend time with the elders as they play Bingo and talk to them– offering some younger companionship. Even if you don’t speak Chinese, just your presence can lively up the room. Or, better yet, come practice what Chinese you do have!
