Abstract

In the case of the elderly, volunteering programs represent a way of participation in society, promoting an aging quality. In the present work we set out to analyze various volunteer opportunities aimed at our elders. Currently there are some 30 volunteer opportunities throughout Spain. The results show that the majority of activities are emotional and personal accompaniment. The self-awareness of the elderly as a volunteer and their incorporation into the aforementioned regulatory frameworks is an increasingly necessary and growing issue.
