I want to Volunteer in Switzerland. All help is welcomed.

I'm writing to you guys, hoping that you will have some time to read this, and be able to help me in any way possible.
I'm from Portugal, on my way to graduate med school. The thing is, I will do my last exam in November 2016, and after that we get to rest for the whole month of December 2016. But I don't want to rest or take some holidays.
So what I thought was that I could be helpful and learn something along the way by volunteering in some institution in the German side of Swisstzerland. In that way, I would also be practising my German and who knows, maybe some months after go do my residency there!
So,I am not looking for any job opportunity of any kind.
I thought nursing homes would probably be a better choice to go!
By now, I've emailed care homes for the elderly (public-Curaviva; private), refugees centers... Everything, and everyone!
I only got an answer from Swiss's alzheimer association!
They were really nice, and tried to help me as much as they could, but there is only so much they can do...
I would be willing to work every day(I would just ask for some minutes to eat!) for the whole month, and I am not looking for any money or place to stay, I would probably find some where cheap to stay.
If you have any people at your care, I would be more than willing to help and follow instructions!
I was just wondering if there is anyone out there, from Switzerland, that would be able to help me in any way, or putting me in touch with the right kind of people!
So if in the meanwhile you think of something that I would be able to help you guys with, just tell me!
Looking after someone for the day or something, anything!
I promise I won't keep bothering you with threads after this one!
Thanks so much for you time!

Best and Kind Regards,
