Forming Teams for Community Service
There are lots of ways to enlist your services to forge a teaming effort of volunteering with seniors. Did you know that seniors are often looking for opportunities to help in their communities? Everyone needs a purpose; a reason to get up every morning. With so much wisdom, experience, patience, time, and, most of all, desire, taking advantage of the opportunity to utilize the most important assets any community has is something to consider.
Senior as Foster Grandparents
A lot of people don’t have any support system to help out with rearing children. Our society is full of single parents struggling to do it all alone with no family or friends to lean on who can take the time to care and understand what its like to struggle with raising a family while trying to earn enough money to put food on the table. Seniors are a great resource for providing single parents by providing time to spend with children and give them the love and nuturing that is so vitally needed. Foster Grandparenting progams are a way to volunteer your needs to work with a Senior Citizen who has a lifetime of experience and a heart full of love to give.
Seniors as Assisting Companions
Another equally rewarding program is for people within the community who need help with daily living due to a physical or mental challenge. Seniors are helping these people every day because they know the rewards of volunteering their time and care are far more fulfilling than the effort it takes to provide their services.
