How to find volunteers to help you and your loved one

Many communities in the United States have a "village", which is a network of volunteers who are available to help anyone 60 and over to do a great variety of tasks. These villages are also based on an small area, a neighborhood, a small town, or a community as defined by the volunteers. The people are generous, trained, vetted, and have had a background check for honesty. 

 

Here is the national web site and the page that lets you look up whether there is village you can be a part of: https://www.vtvnetwork.org/content.aspx?page_id=1905&club_id=691012
