The Secret to Keeping Your Sense of Purpose

After years of looking forward to retirement, many retirees miss the sense of belonging and purpose that comes from the workplace. They may feel isolated, and that life has lost part of its meaning. But if you’re a resident at Advent Christian village, you can join our team of senior volunteer program.

While senior volunteering is not required at our community, it is encouraged. We know the strong sense of purpose that comes from dedicating some time to helping others. And that’s only the start to the benefits volunteering in retirement can offer. Volunteering is an opportunity to add a renewed sense of purpose and passion to life. Just ask our team of senior living volunteers to share their experience with you. Volunteer work for seniors offers broader social networks and a way to stay active in the community — and with that, a sense of belonging. Plus, you’ll get the added benefit of keeping your skills and your mind sharp.
