ALEH gives people a place to call home


Hi I’m Becca and I am from New Jersey, USA!

I volunteered at ALEH for 6 weeks this summer! As a volunteer I mostly spent time with the residents and helped them each morning to brush their hair and put on their shoes. I would walk them to the ‘ta’asuka’, which is their daily workshop where they create beautiful objects which are sold at the ‘ALEH Boutique‘ online. I would arrange their meals and snacks and most of all, I would make sure that they were having fun!

ALEH gives people of all types and all ages a place to call home.

Not only did I make amazing friends from all over the world, I would also get to work with the most wonderful residents and staff. ALEH gives people of all types and all ages a place to call home. With an incredible variety or resources such as horse therapy, hydrotherapy, music therapy and new and interesting day-to-day activities, ALEH keeps their residents active and happy in the best way possible!

I will always cherish my time at ALEH and I can’t wait to come back and visit the wonderful residents and staff!
