“Volunteers Make Mapleridge”

Volunteer Canada States:
“Volunteering can play a vital role in healthy aging.  Remaining active and staying connected to the community can have a positive impact on a person’s social, physical and emotional wellbeing.  Studies have found that older adults who volunteer have reduced stress-related illnesses and higher self-esteem and are less likely to feel isolated.  Volunteering can also have a positive impact on lifestyle transitions in older adults as they retire, downsize their housing or deal with health issues. According to Statistics Canada, Canada’s senior adults volunteer an average of 223 hours each year, more then any other age group.”
