Neighbor to Neighbor:
A Texas Village
 -helping maturing adults stay active, engaged and productive in their community.

           
     
 
Our membership area covers Fayette County Texas, where neighbors are friends and friends are family.
 According to a recent study, which AARP endorses, nearly all older adults would like to stay in their own homes as they age.  The preference of the majority of older adults to continue to live in familiar environments is captured in the term “aging in place,” a concept that  refers to the ability to remain in one’s residence of choice as one ages, avoiding unwanted relocation associated with age-related personal or environmental limitations. Aging in place is consistent with recent public policy initiatives to promote home- and community-based services  in order to reduce nursing home use.

Annual single membership dues for this program is $300. Annual couple dues is $500. Income from dues are needed to pay for the administration of the program, phone and mailing expenses, background checks of all volunteers, expenses associated with social events, and facility expenses. These membership dues are among the lowest in the nation of over 200 such similar programs.

The services offered through the Age in Place program will help area residents avoid a crisis point where they are forced to give up living in their homes and MUST MOVE to an assisted-living facility, which can be emotionally traumatic, more costly than staying in their home, and decrease their quality of life.  See our benefits page for specific services available to members
