Come learn about Silver Spring Village and ‘aging in place’!
Join your neighbors on Monday, March 16, 2015 at 7pm for the next SFCCA Community Meeting. The meetings take place at the Schweinhaut Senior Center located at 1000 Forest Glen Road.
Silver Spring Village, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that offers needed services and programs for older adults who wish to “age in place” — to remain as long as possible in their own homes, amid familiar people and surroundings. Like other Villages throughout the U.S. — it is one of approximately 36 villages either established or under development in the Washington D.C. area — its network of “neighbors helping neighbors” aims to support individuals and to strengthen the local community. Help includes things like transportation, minor home repairs, and grocery shopping, plus a program of social and educational events. Participation by a diverse mix of residents within the Village’s defined geographic area enhances the quality of life for the entire community. This is not just for folks who are getting up there in years — people of all ages can be involved.
Mae Novak, past vice-president and current chair of Silver Spring Village’s volunteers committee, will be the featured speaker at our March 16 meeting.
