Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
When seniors are removed from social interaction, they experience isolation and loneliness, which can lead to physical ailments, depression and other issues. That’s why keeping older adults engaged and connected is incredibly important in order to help them age well, stay healthy and enjoy everything their senior years have to offer. By using video chatting software, both volunteers and seniors can connect while staying safely distanced.
