Older adults who do volunteer work to help others, such as mentoring children in need, aiding refugees or addressing climate change enjoy better health and find meaning and purpose in daily life.

Volunteering also helps to ease stress, anxiety, and chronic pain, reduce disability risk, and add years to life.
