Getting healthy by giving back

The perfect volunteer opportunity is out there for you!

I don’t need research to tell me that volunteering improves the health of adults ages 50 and older; I see it every day at Oasis. Older adults who volunteer are more likely to maintain strength and functional ability, or the ability to perform every day activities, which is key to maintaining independence.
