Senior Nation Profiles: Talbot Village Connections

Share

Talbot Village Connections (TVC) is a membership organization for adults, more than 55 years of age, who live in Talbot County. It was started by a group of local residents to assist members to live independently in an age-friendly environment. The group is dedicated to the concept of supporting aging persons with a wide array of services to promote independent living.

TVC assists with the coordination of services in your own home, similar to those offered in a retirement community. TVC uses volunteers and preferred venders to enable individuals to remain connected to their community by providing access to health and wellness programs, home repairs, social and educational activities and other day-to-day needs.

TVC’s staff will arrange the volunteer assistance you request and follow up to ensure that you receive the level of service you requested. When a member needs assistance that goes beyond what volunteers can provide, TVC will provide contacts to professionals whom other villagers have found to be capable, dependable and reasonable. Access to home help is only a phone call away, giving you convenience and peace of mind.

An annual membership fee provides services for one household. Financial assistance may be available to those with limited resources.

TVC Board Members include Chuck Callahan (Talbot County Council Member), Marion Donahue, Pat Flory, Judy Harrald, Connie Lauffer, Pam Limberry, Lee Newcomb, Lori Ramsey, Terri Ross, Donna Warner and Sharon Yateman.

Advisory Board Members are C. Lee Gordon, Rose Potter, Amy Steward and Fredia Wadley.

TVC is a component fund of the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, a public foundation designated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. For more information on Talbot Village Connections please go here
