Caring neighbors helping older neighbors to thrive: thats the vision at Silver Spring Village, where just three staff and over 100 trained volunteers serve more than 200 members older adults who wish to remain in their homes as they age. Volunteers provide transportation (with stipends for members with disabilities who need specialized transport), take notes at medical appointments, and assist with household tasks and errands. Regular visits and phone calls reduce isolation and help identify when more support is needed, at which point members are referred to the Villages vetted professional partners. And a full calendar of more than 300 educational, recreational, and social events (many of which are open to the public) encourage seniors to make friends, learn new things, and stay healthy. Support the Village, and you can help build a community where seniors feel truly valued.
