Help from local Villages
Villages are a grass roots movement of older people who come together to form membership organizations enabling them to "stay put" in their homes and neighborhoods. From their own homes, one phone call or mouse click connects members to activities, learning opportunities, ways to be useful, and help, if it is needed. Villages offer opportunities to strengthen people's social networks, volunteer for each other, and engage local resources to provide useful services. More than 130 villages exist in urban, suburban, and rural communities.
