The New Year inspires us with renewed hope for achieving personal goals and happiness. Neuroscience has revealed that giving is a powerful way to create more personal joy and improve your overall health. Acts of kindness will help you reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose. Volunteering offers vital support to people in need, but the benefits can be even greater for you.

There are many important causes that you can give to, but keep older adults in mind as they are so often forgotten. United HomeCare invites you to volunteer with us. As the largest non-profit organization serving South Florida’s seniors, we see the needs of older adults first hand. Frail elders often experience isolation and loneliness. Volunteer support is needed to help them remain engaged in the community as they age.  Our mission is ever more important, as the older adult population is increasing dramatically. Without community support many older adults can no longer remain living at home. Honestly, “There’s just no place like home.”

Here are 12 ways you can help older adults in South Florida. [1] Volunteer your time and talent. [2] Give to charitable causes that help the elderly. [3] Spread the Word! Tell a neighbor, your family and friends, post in social media. [4] Advocate for the elderly. [5] Buy a Gift Certificate for Personal Home Care. [6] Visit an assisted living facility or nursing home to offer your time, talent, and good conversation. [7] Help an elderly neighbor. [8] Teach Your Children to treat elders with dignity and respect. [9] Help a Family Caregiver. [10] Stay Involved.                                                        [11] Learn from the elderly. They are a treasure! [12] Try adding volunteering and charitable giving to your bucket list this year. You’d be surprised what a difference you will make.
