Mr. Yoshiyuki Saito
"Caregiving" volunteer internship

Even though I had little idea about "caregiving" before, the volunteer internship at Umenoki Home turned out to be a fun experience thanks to supportive staff members.

A whole new experience in a whole new world

The volunteer activities to assist Umenoki residents' daily life was awfully tough for me who had always lived at parents' home.

Recreational activities with residents

I had a difficult time trying to come up with a recreational activity that fits the wide range of residents' abilities.

A meaningful Summer 2012

When I look back, every experience during my 2-month volunteer internship contributed to a meaningful Summer 2012.
