5) Aging in Place – Villages Presentation (4/26)

Interested in aging in your own home? A Village is the answer.

Want to grow old in your own home & neighborhood supported by a caring community? Then, help us create a Village to serve North Portland!

Villages are networks of volunteer services and reduced-cost professional support that foster affordable, interdependent aging in community. They also feature programs to keep us engaged with others while we enjoy activities ranging from fitness groups to classes and social events.

Now is the time to build a North Portland Village so we can continue living in our own homes – as homeowners, renters, seniors sharing housing or living with relatives. We can benefit from more than a decade of experience from the 130+ villages that have formed nationwide. More than 150 Villages are in development across the states, including six here in the Portland metro area!

Come! Bring a neighbor or friend to learn more about the Portland metro-area Village Movement and how you can join the team planning a Village unique to North Portland residents.

Saturday, April 26 2 – 4 pm

St. Johns Library

N. Charleston St. in downtown St. Johns
