Home Care in Summerlin NV
It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day affairs of living, especially if you are a family caregiver whose life is overflowing with to-do lists, and 24 hours in a day does not seem enough. Your parent may also be feeling the effects of the day to day challenges that aging brings. Volunteering not only provides the opportunity to give back to a community that has supported you in a multitude of ways, it is also a great way to view life from a new perspective.
If adding one more activity to your list makes you feel overwhelmed, it’s time to get help. A home care provider not only assists with the daily activities of living, they become a close companion. You can focus your care efforts on activities outside the home, like volunteering, while a home care provider can ensure your senior loved one is safe inside their home.
Ways to Volunteer
Giving back and, at the same time, becoming socially engaged is a win-win situation. Many seniors enjoy these activities so much, volunteering becomes a daily activity. They feel a sense of pride and accomplishment—as well they should.
If your loved one has a fondness for animals, there are many animal organizations in dire need of volunteers to care for lost and abandoned animals. Your community will almost certainly have a local animal shelter or humane society. In 2015, volunteers contributed 63,176 hours helping PAWS care for wildlife and pets, and educate the public at large.
Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors and friends to children with exceptional needs. Working with children takes an extra commitment as many come from backgrounds of neglect and abandonment. Before you sign up to help a child, make sure you or your parent have the staying power. Many local hospitals are also in need of volunteers to visit and keep the spirits up of children who are going through difficult times.
