“I’m an 82-year-old widow, determined to continue aging in place, though living alone.  Just as I was beginning to feel anxiety-what to do about outdoor winter work, I learned about Portland Area Villages.  The needs their services cover are broad.  Simply knowing that this wonderful volunteer community is out there, ready to help:  that’s a relief.  Enough to make me feel at ease.  Reassured.”

“Portland Area Villages is a wonderful experience.  The drivers and volunteers are positive and caring.  Everything is very timely and done well.  It’s a chance to be part of a new network in Portland that will give a sense of community over time.” 

~ Karen, age 68


“It’s wonderful to be part of an Aging in Place Village.  I hope seniors will be able to take full advantage of all that is offered to them.  Staying in your own home is the primary goal.” 

~ Leah, age 94
