Volunteer and make a difference in your community - and your health!
Volunteering is a positive way to engage your community and make a difference. While the social benefits of volunteering your time are well established, research indicates that volunteering also benefits individual health as well.
People aged 65 and older are more likely to experience physical inactivity and a diminished sense of purpose when their social roles change. Volunteering in positive community activities rejuvenates a person’s sense of social responsibility and gives them a defined purpose. Research even shows volunteers may maintain their independence longer as they grow older because of the mental and physical stimulation experienced while volunteering.
