April 10 Forum: Bellingham At Home

Volunteer leaders Janet Simpson and Allen Johnson will speak at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship on Sunday, April 10, at 9:15 a.m. on the projected launch of Bellingham at Home, a program of the Whatcom Council on Aging, in late spring of this year.
For seniors who prefer staying in their own homes rather than moving into retirement homes or assisted living facilities, Bellingham at Home offers membership in a network of services called a Virtual Village. Villages are member-driven, grass-roots organizations that, through both volunteers and paid staff, coordinate access to affordable services including transportation, health and wellness programs, home repairs, social and educational activities, and other day-to-day needs, enabling individuals to remain connected to their community as they age.
