Jay Evans speaks with Our Ventura TV host, Bob Taylor, about “Virtual Villages” for seniors.
Virtual villages represent organizations, usually staffed by volunteers (often with a small paid staff), that provide services to the elderly in order to allow them to remain in their homes as they age. Virtual villages are a part of the “aging in place” movement, and are found in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the Netherlands.
Most virtual villages have members, to whom they provide services upon request. Services offered typically include transportation, light home maintenance and repair and social activities. Most villages do not provide medical services or involved home maintenance, but provide referrals to those who do.
