Description The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness o f Neighbors Helping Neighbors, a community program designed to facilitate older adults' ability to remain independent and live in their own homes while preserving their quality of life. The study consisted of two populations-older adult participants in the Neighbors Helping Neighbors program and volunteers with the program. Analysis of the data suggest that the Neighbors Helping Neighbors participants believe that their quality o f life has been improved since they have been in the program. Results from this study can be used to improve/develop NHN services. Future studies would benefit from a baseline in order to objectively determine improvements in the participants' well being as well as a larger sample population, needed to determine the statistical significance o f any findings. KEYWORDS, older adults, quality o f life, volunteers, social support
