Samantha always felt a strong sense of responsibility to give back to her community and make a positive impact on the world around her. One way Samantha chose to do this is by volunteering at nursing homes in her area.
Volunteering at a nursing home can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience for anyone, as a gen z she believed it was especially important for us to be involved in this type of work. We are known for being tech-savvy and connected to the world, and this can be a valuable asset when working with the older generation who may not be as familiar with technology.
One of the things Samantha enjoyed the most about volunteering at a nursing home is the opportunity to connect with residents and learn about their lives and experiences. Many of the residents have lived through incredible historical events and have stories to tell that are both inspiring and educational. She also found that spending time with the residents can be incredibly uplifting and can make a real difference in their day-to-day lives.
In addition to the social aspect of volunteering, Samantha was also been able to put her tech skills to good use by helping residents with things like using smartphones, tablets, and other devices. This has been particularly rewarding as many of the residents are not as familiar with technology and can often feel isolated as a result. By helping them stay connected to their families and friends through social media, she was able to help improve their overall quality of life.
Overall, volunteering at a nursing home as a Gen Z person has been a truly enriching experience for Samantha. It has allowed her to make meaningful connections with the older generation and to use her skills and abilities in a way that makes a real difference in the lives of others. If you are a Gen Z person looking for a way to give back to your community, Samantha highly recommends considering volunteering at a nursing home.
