For someone who wants to be involved in serving their community, helping the elderly is a great place to start. Whether you just want to help others or you need to find a community service project for a church group or school project, there are plenty of opportunities to help end senior isolation, hunger, or depression by providing services such as grocery delivery, yard work, starting a handiwork club, teaching computer skills, or simply making a friend. Connect with a like-minded organization that specializes in matching volunteers with particular types of service opportunities, or lead your own initiative with family or friends. Whatever your age, you can make a difference in the lives of others.
Chores like washing the car can be a lot for an elderly person to handle, but they’ll certainly feel happy to have a sparkling-clean car again.
