VOLUNTEERING

Reaching Out to Help Others

According to recent research, seniors who participate in volunteer activities not only help society, they also help themselves. Studies indicate that older adults who do volunteer work can actually realize significant health benefits – including a lower risk of depression, fewer physical limitations and a delay in the onset of age-related health problems.

At The Mayflower, residents help their neighbors in a variety of capacities, and many are also involved in the Winter Park community as pink ladies, mentors and museum docents, and by serving on various community boards.
