Find a Senior Who Needs YouMany seniors in your community need your help.
While there may be no signs in yards or wanted ads in newspapers asking for help, there are many seniors nearby that would be more than willing to accept a helping hand. The hard part is often finding them.
Here are a few ideas to help you help a senior in your community:
- Call a senior center – There are many local organizations and centers on aging that offer opportunities to volunteer or interact with lonely and underprivileged seniors. A few include: National Senior Center, National Council on Aging and Administration for Community Living.
- Ask a friend – Word of mouth is often the best avenue to make connections. Social media and online forums are often great places a friend can help connect someone to a senior in need.
- Become a pen pal – Brighten someone’s day without even leaving your couch by writing a letter to a senior.
