It Takes a Village...

In exchange for an annual membership fee, a Village provides and coordinates services, such as transportation, home repairs and grocery shopping, to its members. According to the article, “there are about 65 active villages nationwide”. The article goes on to say that “about half of the nation’s villages are concentrated in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic” and “between 10,000 – 13,000 people are members, according to the Village-to-Village Network.” (More information about the Village-to Village Network is available at www.vtvnetwork.org).

As the number of seniors continues to grow, more and more of these seniors are looking for ways to age in place, that is, continue to live in the homes and neighborhoods they know and love. Some of the big challenges to aging in place are home maintenance and transportation. The nonprofit Village concept seeks to address and solve those challenges by providing safe and reliable assistance. It isn’t a perfect solution because some seniors can’t afford the membership fee and even with paying members, some Villages struggle to make ends meet; but it is an interesting and encouraging sign that for those who wish to age in place, where there is a will, this is one innovative way.
