Friendship Circle Senior Center Introduces “Aging At Home”
Senior Community Services (SCS) in conjunction with the United Way of Greater Philadelphia has introduced an initiative for residents of Aldan, Colwyn, East Lansdowne, Lansdowne & Yeadon who are 60+ called “Aging at Home: A Community Network”. If you are a senior, or know of an eligible senior, living in their own home who would like door-to-door service to doctor’s visits or the grocery store, needs assistance with households chores: lawn care and snow removal or home repair referrals please visit www.scsdelco.org.
Villanova University ReachOut Program: Volunteers, mainly nursing majors, contact an older adult partner approximately once weekly for 20-30 minutes to engage in social discussion. No medical advice is provided. Calls continue weekly or at a mutually agreed upon frequency between the older adult and student.
