Why You Should Volunteer at Your Mom’s Retirement Home

If you are looking for an opportunity to make a difference with your talents and maybe even learn some new skills, consider volunteering at a retirement community.

You may have the opportunity to read to the visually impaired or bake for the residents. Many communities encourage pet therapy programs and you can bring along your love for animals to assist with this type of program.

How to be the Coolest Senior

Technology is making it easier for seniors to stay active and keep in touch with their loved ones. New advancements in technology are also helping seniors to remain safe. From self-driving cars that will allow older adults to maintain their independence, to shoes that will improve balance and deter falls, shirts that administer CPR, and smart homes with voice control, many products are being designed to enhance their lives.
