Bethanien Krankenhaus

After graduation from the Englisches Institut Heidelberg in 1999 I served for 11 months at the rehabilitation station of the Geriatric Center Bethanien for my social service. My tasks included nursing, hygienic care and assistance to the patients, serving meals and medication, running errands for the examinated nursing staff and taking care of the patient’s beds and rooms. I learned a lot about social welfare and its importance. I enjoyed the work and the ability to help needing people and to take over responsibilities. At the end of my obligatory service I helped out as intern at the accounting department, creating presentations from excel sheets, checking documents and records and running general errands.
