World Endeavors Eldercare volunteers provide day-to-day support for senior citizens at nursing homes and other eldercare facilities in communities around the world. With increasing economic pressures and shifting family roles in many countries, traditional ways of caring for the elderly have become difficult to maintain, leaving many senior citizens without a support network. Volunteers spend time with nursing home residents, teaching them English, learning their language, sharing stories, and playing games. Volunteers also provide support for local staff, assisting with meal preparation, cleaning, or laundry. In the process, volunteers build relationships and gain unique insights into the past, present, and future of their host countries.
