Villagers celebrated one year of growth, friendship, learning, volunteering and having fun at a July get-together at the Palos Verdes Peninsula Library.
In addition to reviewing a successful year of growth, members also learned about two resources that are available in the community.
1. HomeShare: This organization facilitates housing options for the aging in a variety of ways. A client can agree to have someone move in with them to pay rent and help defray expenses, or perhaps give daily help with more challenging activities, or simply for companionship. Or, a senior could elect to move in with someone else, for companionship or to reduce living expenses.
2. Center for Optional Aging, located at Providence Little Company of Mary Hospital, San Pedro, provides a three-part assessment performed by an expert multi-disciplinary team of therapists, dietitians, pharmacists and eldercare specialists to insure that the patient is receiving all necessary medical care. The program is covered by Medicare and PPO Insurance.
