Volunteerism

Donating your time is a great way to gain first-hand knowledge about the challenges older adults are facing every day. Many communities have volunteer centers that connect individuals with programs and organizations.

Volunteers help older adults in many ways, including:

  • Driving and delivery
  • Help with shopping
  • Social interaction (both in person and by phone)
  • Home repair
  • Legal and financial counseling
