Insurance

Are you a caregiver or volunteer in the Municipality of Wageningen? If so, when volunteering or providing care, you are insured through the Municipality of Wageningen. This insurance covers accidents and damage to personal items. You do not need to register for it. Outside of your work as a volunteer or caregiver, you are responsible for your own liability insurance. Liability insurance covers the damages that you cause to someone else.

Need help from volunteers?

Professional social workers cannot always provide the help that you need. There may be few or no people in your area who can provide help in your situation. If that is the case, you can contact the Wageningen Volunteer Centre. If you have a help request, the Volunteer Centre will look for an organisation that can provide you with a solution. For example, take a look at the following questions:

Types of help requests

• Visiting and care services for people with a disability, chronic illness, or dementia
• Accompaniment and transport to physicians or hospitals, even outside of the region
• Visiting people who have trouble leaving their house and who have limited contact with their environment
• Voluntary hospice care
• Buying groceries for or with someone
• Helping out with work in the home and garden
• Assistance with physical activity for people with a physical limitation
• Support in organising administrative paperwork or filling out forms
