The local chapter of the National Aging In Place Council (NAIPC) requests your presence at a community wide informational meeting regarding the development of a” Village for Talbot County”.
The aim of the Village movement is to help senior citizens remain in their own homes as they age. Villages recruit volunteers to provide a range of services and activities that seniors may need from changing a light bulb to transportation to a doctor’s appointment. A Village does not take the place of other, already established services; however, acts as a resource and referral service and a complement to other services. Businesses can be vetted and may even offer discounts to individuals that are members of the Village.
Please join us on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the Easton Volunteer Fire Department for a discussion about how Villages can improve the aging process in Talbot County and about how you can help with this movement. There will be a brief presentation defining Villages followed by ad Q & A session. Light refreshments will be available. The Fire Department is located at 315 Aurora Park Drive in Easton.
For additional information please feel free to contact Lee Lynch Newcomb at 410-770-8741 or email@example.com .
We hope to see you on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Easton Volunteer Fire Department.
