Salute to Senior Service (1 of 4)

Today's seniors are volunteering in big numbers and in big ways. Approximately 52 percent of seniors volunteer their time through unpaid community service, with 87 percent saying it is either very important or the most important thing they do. They are engaged with churches, schools, hospitals, senior centers, and other non-profits that reach many in need.

    I'm a retired Nursing Supervisorl. My nursing now is going to a local nursing home doing pet therapy with one of my two Corgis. It's lovely just to enjoy the residents and not have to worry about all their care!

    I am a Part-time Caregiver right now. I truely enjoy being able to take care of Senior Citizens. I took care of my Mother about 7 years ago. Seniors are a joy to be with and laugh with. I love to share my stories with them as well as listen to their stories about their life experiences. It's nice to know that we as Caregivers can make a difference in their lives. Smile and the world will smile back at you!
