NASHUA, NH– A new service aimed at assisting senior citizens with maintaining their independence has opened in Nashua, Hudson and Litchfield.
The Village Network at Life Coping is an organization that provides referrals and support for adults 62 and older who wish to maintain their independent lifestyles, but who need assistance with day-to-day living arrangements, such as transportation, housekeeping, grocery shopping, household repairs, computer assistance, financial record keeping, and other types of support.
The organization operates by annual membership. Members, who must be residents of Nashua, Hudson and Litchfield, NH and at least 62 years old, are given access to a pre-approved list of authorized companies which provide services at a discount to Village Network members.
These companies have been screened by Village Network staff and certified as reliable and trustworthy. Members have a contact at Village Network who assists with identifying needs and connecting members with local vendors who can support them.
“The Village Network is an exciting new support option for people who want to remain in their homes and live independently as they grow older,” explains Ellen Curelop, RN, Village Network President. “As our population ages, more people want to continue living on their own, with a great quality of life. Our goal is to facilitate that for our members.”
For an annual fee of $325 for an individual, or $525 for a household, the network assists with accessing service providers. Once referrals are made, members work directly with providers at a negotiated rate.
