Recently, elderly people have been increasing their role in the community as volunteers. New perspectives toward aging have contributed to this trend, along with the changing demographics of senior citizens and the current social policies encouraging volunteerism. There are countless non-profit groups in almost every community that need volunteers for a variety of tasks. These groups also need volunteers who may have limited physical abilities. Volunteering not only benefits the organizations you support, but it can also bring a sense of fulfillment and belonging to the volunteer. For more information on volunteering, contact non-profit groups in your area.
