If you’ve been considering becoming a volunteer, here are some benefits to keep in mind:
Gaining a Wealth of Knowledge
Sitting down and chatting with a senior can provide a wealth of knowledge for any individual! Listening to their stories can provide wisdom and insight for life, offering a new perspective for your own life circumstances.
Improving the Life of Seniors
Serving as a volunteer offers important opportunities for social interaction for both you and the people you work with in any senior center. Loneliness can be alleviated through the connection you offer.
Making New Friends
Volunteering in a senior center offers the chance to make new friends. While initially you may feel as if you have very little in common, you may be surprised to find you share a love of music, a hobby, a travel experience, or your family background.
