While China's aged population was once care for by the family, it is now estimated that over 450 elderly care center have been set up to support some of Shanghai's 2.25 million persons over the aged of 65.
Ranging in size and quality, Hands On Shanghai has partnerships with several of Shanghai's argest failities, and we need your help!
By spending time with the elderly, we not only show them the respect and honor they deserve, but also learn to give our care to this much-overlooked demographic. Working to enrich the lives of older residents, volunteers brighten their own as well.
Hands On volunteers engage the elderly in fun activities to enliven the elders' daily schedules. Volunteers will play BINGO and mahjong, assist with rehabilitation classes, teach English, keep up the garden, and engage in a lot of very interesting conversations.
Our elderly programs are open to all of our groups (individual, student, and corporate), and we hope to see you there!
