According to the managing director, the new association Nachbarschaftshilfe Poing is to start operations at the turn of the year. Actually, the launch was planned earlier. Now there have already been the first donations.
Poing – The start of the neighbourhood help in Poing is taking longer than planned. The association has been founded, as Oliver Westphalen reports, but in order to be able to start work, one has to wait for further applications/approvals. He expects the neighbourhood assistance to start operating in December/January.
Westphalen is the managing director of Nachbarschaftshilfe (NBH) Vaterstetten, whose concept will be adopted for Poing and coordinated by the NBH there. Around 150 interested people came to a first information event in February in the auditorium of the primary school on Karl-Sittler-Straße. Here, Westphalen listed what services the NBH Poing would have: outpatient care at home (for example, administering medication; the NBH also offers nursing courses for relatives); domestic help; assisted living at home (preparing breakfast, doing the shopping, spending time together); mobile lunch table.
(By the way: Everything from the region is now also available in our regular Ebersberg newsletter.)
The difference to the old neighbourhood help in Poing, which was discontinued in 2017 due to a lack of volunteers: the new NBH Poing is no longer a purely voluntary service and therefore not free of charge. NBH's services are billed by nursing care and health insurance companies, and employees receive professional training. If you want, you can also volunteer in the NBH and donate your earnings to those people who do not have a degree of care and therefore do not receive financial support from the nursing care fund, it was said at the time of the information evening.
Poing: Donations from "Holy Night" and palm bushes
NBH Poing is happy to accept donations in order to be able to care for and care for these people. Oliver Westphalen has now gratefully done so: He accepted a total of 3200 euros. 2500 euros are the proceeds from the reading of "Holy Night" by Ludwig Thoma with music in the church of St. Michael, shortly before Christmas 2022 - the sum was rounded up by the parish. The Poing Women's Association donated 700 euros from the sale of palm bushes at Easter.
The "Holy Night" was read by Christian Falterer and musically accompanied by d'Vuizbandoffen and the Hofhaisl-Dreigsang. Afterwards there was a mulled wine bar, the money raised here is also part of the donation for the Poinger NBH.
