Helping seniors live at home. If you have a few hours a week, consider volunteering for Community Care for Seniors. Many people are drawn to giving their time to a “good cause” and Community Care for Seniors fits the bill. “I enjoy being …part of seniors helping seniors and seeing what can be accomplished when we all work together.” And another volunteer says “what I like about volunteering is meeting the seniors of this community and helping them find what they want.”
