Do Yourself Some Good by Doing Good for Someone Else
Volunteering is its own reward. It opens your eyes to the world around you and makes you feel uplifted by making a positive difference in someone else’s life. Helping seniors or disabled individuals makes the reward even sweeter.
The United Way Area Agency on Aging of Jefferson County offers a variety of volunteer opportunities.
- You might deliver hot noontime meals to homebound seniors through United Way of Central Alabama’s Meals on Wheels program.
- You could become a Certified Ombudsman Volunteer, who helps ensure that long-term care facilities are providing proper, quality care to residents.
- You could help seniors with the application process for SenioRx, which provides free or low-cost prescription medication to qualifying seniors.
- Or you might become a Certified SHIP Councilor, helping seniors navigate the Medicare system to make sure they get the benefits they’re entitled to.
