Kno-Wal-Lin Home Care & Hospice will present Staying Involved: The Health Benefits of Volunteerism Thursday, April 10, from noon to 1 p.m. at Pen Bay Healthcare’s Picker Family Resource Center.

Studies show that involved people are happier and healthier people. Joy Chamberlin, Kno-Wal-Lin’s home care volunteer coordinator; Cheryl Feldpausch, Penquis RSVP volunteer specialist and Mariah Smith, community coordinator for Five Town Communities That Care will share their experiences of the benefits of volunteerism and how caring for others can really be one of the best ways to care for yourself. Participants may also be surprised to discover the diverse ways in which the community could use the public's help.

This free event is part of Health Matters with Kno-Wal-Lin, community talks that explore the ways in which home health and community services can promote one's best health and well-being at home.

Talks take place the second Thursday of every month, from noon  to 1 p.m. at the Picker Family Resource Center, 3 Glen Cove Drive, Suite 2, located on the Pen Bay Medical Center campus. Programs are free and are open to all ages, but space is limited. Please call 596-8950 to register. Attendees are invited to bring their lunch. Beverages and dessert will be provided.
