Working in the nursing home to have a precious time with the elders.


The workcamp has been organized with Malaysian Organization of Volunteer Exchange
(MOVE), since 2019 Aug. in this place. MOVE is a workcamp NGO founded in 2006, but
stopped activities for some years and NICE restarted co-organizing since 2017!
Bernice Home was found by a lady by the name of Bernice. She started this home for senior
citizens who need quality home care services to seniors with limited mobility or dementia
and hence social interaction. She started this home in 2000 and the second home in 2018.
The founder belief “life shouldn’t end when you are old, it should be full of happy memories
regardless of the age. The founder wants to keep the seniors active and engaged through
physical, mental and social activities, all in the comfort of their home.

Volunteers will help in arranging extra activities for the senior citizens, such as art, craft,
painting, gardening, storytelling, music and movement activities. Other than that volunteers
could help the nursing care helpers to cook and take part in daily cleaning routines. Some of
the days, bring the senior citizens for an evening walk if weather permits. Otherwise lots of,
indoor activities could be conduct.
