Lucas Meijs, a professor at Erasmus University, recently presented his research on the relationship between voluntary work and the vitality of elderly individuals. He highlighted the diverse forms of volunteer activities that can engage healthy seniors, emphasizing that volunteering should be seen as a rewarding experience based on competencies rather than just job descriptions. Meijs also recommended that municipalities invest in fostering mutual support among volunteers, as it can help combat loneliness and promote social connections among the elderly.
