The Village provides volunteer drivers to help members get to medical appointments, shopping, and the like. Volunteers also assist with household matters, such as demystifying digital devices, handling household paperwork, and changing light bulbs and batteries. The Village also fills the void in people’s lives when they find their circle of friends contracting. Social engagement is essential to healthy aging.
