If you are interested in advocating for the elderly in your community it is important to know how to get involved. In order to get involved you must know where, how, and when is best to become involved in the advocacy of senior citizens. Here are some options:
First, call the local nursing homes and living facilities in your area to see if their are any volunteer opportunities or internships available. Researching all local agencies that are dedicated to advocating for elder rights and supporting that organization can help greatly. You may also want to see if their are any upcoming events in which you may be able to donate your time.
Additionally, furthering your knowledge regarding how to keep the elderly population healthy is important. To further your knowledge regarding elder health issues you can research upcoming health care conventions in your surrounding areas. Furthermore, by joining forums online who support elder care and combat elder abuse you may be able to network with additional organizations. If you are still looking for ways to assist elders in your community you may be able to begin a new organization in your local community to raise awareness, or raise money.
