At some point we all need help when:

  • Volunteer transportation to medical appointments
  • Social activities including LIFT exercise, book club, member outings, coffee & discussion group, etc
  • Picking up prescriptions and groceries
  • Referral to vendors through out database of member-recommended providers (including home health aides, handyman services, tech help, etc)
  • Building a network of activities and friends to avoid isolation
  • Having help to address the complex challenges of aging

 

This is not a social service model.  This is how we take care of ourselves.

Economically, villages are a great deal.  You can retain equity in your home, your biggest asset.

Villages offer advantages similar to life insurance, which is bought before needed.
