Elder Care Volunteering
Written by Catherine Davis   

Elder care volunteers play an important role in enhancing the quality of life of elderly people. There are lots of ways in which you can help, be it for a couple of days or just a few hours a week.

Older people can easily become isolated, especially if they are housebound or have no nearby relatives. Elder care volunteering offers many opportunities for befriending and home visiting, where you can help out by shopping, gardening or simply by making the tea. Clubs and societies for the elderly also rely on volunteers and often require drivers and escorts.

Behind the scenes, elder care volunteers can get involved in a range of activities including fund raising, administration and charity shop work. Not only will you be making a positive contribution, you'll also meet new people and gain valuable work and life experience.

In the UK, Age Concern and Help the Aged are among the major charities to contact.
