G. Innovating Together: Life Plan Communities and Villages

A Village is a neighborhood-based nonprofit membership organization that uses volunteers to help older residents remain connected with their neighbors while continuing to live in their own homes. This session will focus on the innovative partnerships that can evolve between Villages and life plan communities. Find out how life plan communities are working with Villages to offer the most appropriate services to individuals living in their homes and communities. You’ll even meet a housing provider that partnered with an Area Agency on Aging to develop a Village within an existing Naturally Occurring Retirement Community. Presenters will discuss federal and state policy changes that could help expand the development of similar models nationwide.
