Benefits: When you volunteer in a nursing home you're almost guaranteed to make a few new friends. They may not be your usual crowd, but at one time,believe it or not, they were your age, and they can probably teach you a thing or two about life. Not only will you make friends, but you will also be improving the quality of their life. Moving away from your home and losing much of your independence is not easy, especially after you've been independent for so long. You as a volunteer will develop friendships with residents, family and staff. Your compassion and kindness play an important role in their lives.
