Today Private Home Health Care wants to talk about volunteering. Next week marks the beginning of National Volunteer Week. The week is set aside for us to thank the volunteers in our life for all they do. It can also be a time to think about volunteering ourselves.
Volunteering is very rewarding. It can give you a sense of purpose. You can have great interactions with others who share similar interests. You can also stimulate your mind doing a different activity.
There are many organizations where volunteers play an important role. Animal shelters, nursing homes, food banks and soup kitchens are a few that come to mind. If you are a resident at an assisted living or nursing home you might find that greeters are needed or perhaps help in the facilities’ library.
Age is not always a factor when it comes to volunteering so if you feel well and it sounds like fun try and find a volunteer opportunity for you. You can also spread good feelings by thanking a volunteer you know. Share a story about volunteering that you have done in your lifetime. Next week, take some time to think about volunteers and the important role they play.
