CvilleVillage is a grassroots effort to respond to the changing needs of elders, to support them in their homes, and to value their contributions. The purpose is to create and sustain a broad network of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” Services will be flexible and tailored to each person.
The number of Americans over age 65 was 13% of the national population in 2010. By 2030 the percentage is expected to be 20% – or approximately 72 million people. Boomers are changing the face of aging; overwhelmingly we want to “age-in-place”. Will existing social and health service agencies be able to expand, and adapt, or will they gradually become overwhelmed by the challenges of serving this expanding segment of our population? The goal of CvilleVillage is to be there before we reach this tipping point.
CvilleVillage is part of an ever-growing movement that has taken off across the country. Currently there are at least 100 Villages in the U.S. and internationally, with more than 120 additional Villages in various stages of development.
