'The Volunteering That Makes People 55+ Healthier' ... "research studies show that older adults who volunteer are less likely to have high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease. They face a lower risk of cognitive impairment, too ... there’s now evidence that low-income people age 55 and older who volunteer in the federal Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion programs report better health, decreased depression and less social isolation."

Our senior programs ~ *FGP* & *RSVP* ~ offers something for everyone 55 and beyond. In fact, we have several nonagenarians in our programs volunteering in the community and a couple of centenarians receiving services. Please call us to discuss volunteer opportunities that best fit your own lifestyle and/or services for you or someone you know. https://bit.ly/2tVYuUS

Spring has sprung at the Friends Program thanks to Eastern Valley Landscaping. The outdoor space of our office at 202 North State Street in Concord has gone from dreary to cheery and we are deeply appreciative of the donated time, materials, and expertise.

The Friends Program has been providing programs & services to NH seniors for decades. The term ‘senior’ covers the largest grouping of people, meaning the ages & stages: babies (0-12 mos), toddlers (1-3 yrs), preschoolers (3-5 yrs), gradeschoolers (5-10 yrs), tweens (10-12 yrs), teens (13-18 yrs), young adults (19-21 yrs), adults (20/30/40-somethings), 50 is the new 40, and then 55+ is typically considered ‘senior’. That 'plus' (55+) includes a wide age range that presents a variety of needs and opportunities. Our senior programs ~ *FGP* & *RSVP* ~ offers something for everyone 55 and beyond. In fact, we have several nonagenarians in our programs volunteering in the community and a couple of centenarians receiving services.
