Some people consider volunteering at nursing homes (visiting nursing home residents and playing group games such as bingo) as something that’s sad and downright depressing. However, I disagree. I think helping out elderly residents at nursing homes is something that can be enjoyable and worthwhile. The thing is, if you want to volunteer at a nursing home, you have to view it as an opportunity to help the residents there. If you can look at it that way, then volunteering at nursing homes can be anything but sad.
