Richard Zahn Supports New Article Detailing Benefits of Philanthropy For Seniors

Richard Zahn, who actively participates in community service, is lending his support to a new article detailing the benefits of charitable works among older Americans.

2013-06-26
PHILADELPHIA, PA, June 26, 2013 (Press-News.org) Richard Zahn, who is an active philanthropist residing in Florida, is lending his support to a new article from The Huffington Post which explains the benefits that older Americans receive when they spend time doing volunteer work. The piece notes that it is easy to see how volunteering benefits others, but it should also be noted that doing good work in the community provides benefits for the senior philanthropist too.

Older adults stand to benefit greatly from getting involved with community service. For those who have retired and can no longer identify themselves as wage earners or parents, participating in charitable causes can help an individual to regain their sense of purpose, even as their lifestyle continues to change. Older volunteers are also often able to share experience and insight that proves useful to the groups and people they assist.

Richard Zahn explains, "Volunteering is sometimes thought of something that school-age children or high school students do to fulfill a requirement. In reality, older adults can also find joy in benefiting charitable organizations in their community. In fact, this volunteer work often provides the most enrichment to those who are no longer working outside the home or parenting. For seniors who are able to do so, participating in a charitable organization is a beneficial experience."

In addition to the obvious benefits of helping those in need, Psychology Today notes that senior volunteers describe getting a physical sensation or "helper's high" when they assist others. This feeling provides them with a boost of energy and strength, while decreasing depression. Senior volunteers also reported an increase in self-worth.

For active seniors who are looking to meet other like-minded people, volunteering often provides the perfect chance to do so. A study done by the Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center found that there is a link between higher levels of social connections and participation in social activities with improved cognitive function. This means that philanthropy may actually provide seniors with tangible benefits for their brains.

Older Americans often feel that they can no longer make major changes and improvements to society, but volunteer work helps to negate this belief. Senior philanthropists see that, regardless of their age, they are able to change someone's life for the better. These good works also provide a senior with a chance to learn new skills that they may not have picked up during the course of their career.

Richard Zahn encourages people of all ages to participate in volunteer efforts in their communities explaining, "Regardless of your age, gender, or background, doing community service benefits both the volunteer and the recipient."
