Elderly care programs in Guatemala place volunteers at nursing homes and senior centers in and around La Antigua.

The focus of these projects is to help create a compassionate and friendly atmosphere for the elderly. In the communities where we work, elderly people are from very low-income families and now late in life they rely on local service organizations even for their basic needs. Unfortunately, most of these organizations are extremely under funded and international volunteers are a great source of manpower and support for these organizations and communities. Volunteers provide one-on-one attention, basic healthcare, and socialize with senior citizens. Volunteers also organize recreational activities, medicine distribution, and meal preparation. Some volunteers have even created exercise programs, song and dance activities, and arts and crafts projects.
