As a volunteer you'll support us at an assisted living facility for elderly adults or at a school for disabled children. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Âge 17+
Seul voyageur
Couples
Groupes
50+

Healthcare volunteers are typically placed at an assisted living facility for the elderly or at a special school for children with disabilities. If you have a strong preference we always do our best to accommodate you, however please note that due to availability and seasonal needs at our projects, we cannot guarantee any particular type of facility. We do have specific placements available for those with Physical Therapy training. 

As healthcare volunteers, participants directly assist project staff with day-to-day care work with a central focus of providing general care and companionship to patients.

At adult assisted living facilities, they may be asked to:

  • Plan arts and crafts, make conversation, engage in talk therapy
  • Accompany patients on walks
  • Sort and/or distribute medicine
  • Change beds
  • Feed and bathe patients
  • Ensure patients’ overall well-being
  • Help with administrative work and filing

Please be especially aware that conditions can be emotionally trying. Volunteers should prepare themself mentally and emotionally to work one-on-one with terminally ill patients. 

At facilities for children with disabilities, volunteers may be asked to:

  • Act as a classroom assistant and help run activities
  • Provide additional attention and care to the children
  • Work with one classroom or area of the school throughout your program
  • Help organize arts and crafts, play with the children, assist with physical therapy
  • Assist the children during meal times

Participants are always supported by Maximo Nivel’s in-country coordinators but they are not on site at the project every day, so independence and leadership is important.

Physical Therapy volunteers should be aware that the local practices they join have limited resources. Therapy methods may be very different from those considered standard in their home country. They work in an underfunded facility for patients with mobility problems, assisting with and/or shadowing a professional physical therapist. Placements can involve treating adults or children. Their experience, qualifications, and Spanish level determine how much hands-on treatment they deliver to patients.

Our projects are located in the Cusco area. Walking or taking the bus is the most effective and cheapest way to get to and from your project. Travel time varies widely from project to project, and volunteers should expect to spend 10-60 minutes traveling each way. Taxis are also widely available. On the first day at the project, participants travel on local transport with a Maximo Nivel representative who provides all the necessary information on how to get there and back.

Journée Typique

Working hours may vary slightly, but volunteers can expect to work 3-4 hours per day, Monday to Friday. Volunteer shifts are in either the morning or the afternoon depending on the needs of your project. 

Activités de Loisir

All year round, Cusco and its surrounding towns celebrate a mix of Inca and Catholic holidays, providing visitors with a variety of different cultural activities to experience. Cusco offers travelers a plethora of historical and archaeological sites both in and out of the city. Volunteers most commonly like to explore the Sacred Valley, Lake Titicaca, and of course Machu Picchu. Our local staff also posts a monthly events calendar to let them know of the activities going on around MaximoOur on-site travel partner is very knowledgeable and can assist in setting up trips.
