THE ANSWER TO AGING WELL – IT TAKES A VILLAGE!
JOIN ME! NOVEMBER 11, 2010
THE NATIONAL VILLAGE
GATHERING, PHILADELPHIA, PA
We know it works for children. And, now we are learning being part of a village makes aging easier too!
Imagine a village where members volunteer to help each other with some of the daily tasks that become a little more difficult as we age, that offer social connections and events beyond the standard golf game and bring people of all ages together to create a vibrant community.
The Village to Village Network (Vtv Network http://bit.ly/beYli7) concept is about providing a range of services and access to personal care resources to those who want to ‘age in place’ (their own homes). It allows people in second adulthood to remain active members in their communities, and provides volunteer opportunities for people of all ages.
I will be speaking at the National Village Gathering on Thursday, November 11, 2010 at 9:30 a.m. I am looking forward to meeting the pioneers of this movement from across America whose mottos include:
“I am part of a Village because…I’ve made wonderful friends…My community helps me stay fit…coffee tastes better with friends…I Iike to do my own shopping…and much more.”
