Many older adults living in senior living communities are discovering the wide range of benefits volunteering offers, not only for the organizations served, but also for themselves. By dedicating time and skills, they can make contributions, while at the same time developing a sense of personal fulfillment.
Volunteering provides an excellent opportunity for aging adults to expand their social network and build new friendships, meeting like-minded individuals. Often volunteers see their positive impact and gain self-confidence with a sense of self-worth.
Some volunteer work includes physical tasks, which may contribute to a person’s overall well-being. Improved mental health, reduced stress levels, and increased happiness have all been linked to volunteering.
If you or someone you know is looking for an alternative to passive activities, consider volunteering as a productive and meaningful way to spend your free time. Find the right volunteer opportunity that fits your skills and interests, maximizes your benefits, and provides contribution to your community.
Volunteering and community acts of service are encouraged, supported, and recognized across Arrow Senior Living communities.
