Newcomers please arrive at 6:30 p.m. for a brief orientation. We will hear reports regarding different models of aging-in-place communities and what we might learn from them. There will be Q&A with reps of these villages. Forty-eight local residents attended our Dec. 3rd meeting and gave high marks to such interests as:SOCIAL: developing neighborhood network & skills bank; Companionship and social network; coop living – younger/older pairs; group activities & outings, concerts, book group, knitting group, etc. HOUSEHOLD HELP: handyman; electronics specialist to troubleshoot (computers, etc.); resource list of service professionals. MOBILITY: Temporary support/help in times of special need; car pooling/car share/rides when needed. ADDITIONAL AREAS: database of volunteers; legal/medical/professional advice; Lobbying for older adult issues. Perhaps you have other ideas of ways we can work together for living in place in Mt. Airy. Please contact us to discuss further how Mutual Mount Airy could be of benefit to you and to all of us.
