Progress on Aging in Place

I haven't written for awhile. But we now have an active list of Handymen for our Handyman Corps. AND we have people calling for help within our church family (First Congregational Church of Darien).

On the town front -- our Aging in Place with Grace committee is learning much more and starting to get volunteers to start a town-wide handyman corps, run out of the Darien Community Association.

The Darien Times has posted a list online of services that help seniors in our area.

And Darien Social Services has published a booklet, called The Senior Services Directory, which lists 100 agencies in our area that help seniors. Learn more by clicking on the Social Services link on the Darien Town Web site: http://www.darienct.gov/. That site also has access to the directory.

That's all for now.
