Keeping seniors in their homes: volunteers help to Age In Place

September 23rd, 2011 No Comments

As the boomer population ages and senior care is needed as a result, more and more innovative ideas and solutions will be created to help seniors happy and safe at home. A new volunteer organization called “Aging in Place in White Plans” has emerged as one such idea.

To help older adults stay at home longer, this group has assembled a collection of volunteers who will provide services such as driving people to doctor’s appointments, taking them to the grocery store, and even helping them operate their DVD player, among other helpful tasks younger people take for granted.

There are about 50 similar arrangements throughout the country. As the need for senior care grows daily, no doubt many more associations will materialize. Read more about the White Plains group by clicking on the full story by Rye.Patch.com (http://bit.ly/ndKNmw).
