Caring neighbors helping older neighbors to thrive: thatís the vision at Silver Spring Village, where just three staff and over 100 trained volunteers serve more than 270 members ó older adults who wish to live in their homes as long and as independently as possible. Volunteers provide transportation and technology coaching, take notes at appointments, and assist with household tasks and errands. Regular visits and phone calls reduce social isolation and loneliness and help identify when more support is needed. At that point, members are referred to the Villageís vetted professional partners. A full calendar of more than 900 educational, recreational, and social events (many of which are open to the public) encourages seniors to make friends, learn new things, and stay healthy. Supporting the Village means helping to build a community where seniors feel truly valued.
