A Local Non-Profit Helping the Aging Stay in their Own Homes by Providing Volunteer Services.
Aging can bring with it a number of challenges which often forces people into assisted living sooner than needed. Our mission is to support seniors, giving them, and their families, the confidence that allows them to stay in their homes longer. We are a community in Southwest WA, committed to helping each other live in our homes as long and as safely and inexpensively as possible. We are neighbors helping other neighbors stay in the neighborhood they know and love. We are trained and background checked volunteers who help our neighbors with some of the challenges of daily life, such as cooking, cleaning, help with grocery shopping, errands, chores, light yard work, rides, companionship and more. We become each other’s support when our own support is no longer available.
Villages Clark County is part of a sweeping national grassroots movement across the US where more than 40,000 seniors in 200 villages are getting the help and support they need to stay living in their homes (www.VTVNetwork.org). These villages have proven over the last 16 years that this is a better and much needed way to address the needs of seniors so they can stay safely in their homes and neighborhoods for as long as they can.
