The GMVA has established a committee that will investigate the possibility of establishing a program that helps seniors remain living in their own homes and work collectively to assist each other. The concept, known as a "Village" is established in about 200 communities across the country. It helps integrate services provided in a community with other activities such as vetting and contracting service people, assisting with transportation, wellness programs, social activities and those nagging problems like that appraisal notice.
At its April 2015 meeting, the GMVA authorized funds to investigate the incubation of a "Beacon Hill Village" concept in Grogan's Mill. We have joined the Village to Village network, met with local Non Government Organizations and will soon be asking if you are interested. To find out more visit http://www.beaconhillvillage.org which describes what the original village does for its members. If you would be interested in joining such a community let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have applied to Leadership Montgomery County for help in setting up this new concept. Please see our
