UM Cares: informal carers lunch, on 10 November

‘UM Cares About You – Lunch’ is an event during which the spotlight is put on UM’s mantelzorgers (informal carers).

It takes place on 10 November at two locations, in both Randwyck (Universiteitssingel 40) and the city centre (Tongersestraat 53), from 12.00 – 13.15.

To celebrate, appreciate, and bring together all of those who care, you are kindly invited to register here and mention your dietary wishes. The lunch will be vegetarian.

Thursday 10 November is the national ‘Dag van de Mantelzorg’ (Day of informal care) in the Netherlands. The word Mantelzorger is made out of mantel, meaning coat, and zorger, meaning carer. To be a mantelzorger is to embrace others with caring needs wholeheartedly.

Do you selflessly care for a loved one, a family member, a friend, or your neighbour for approximately eight hours a week? If so, according to the CBS (Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek) then you too are a mantelzorger.

Oftentimes, the efforts and actions of mantelzorgers are taken for granted, erasing the reality of everyday caring. UM Cares is organising this lunch for all informal carers, whether students or staff, at Maastricht University. During the lunch, you will be able to mingle and exchange experiences.
