Learn About Darien's Aging in Place+Gallivant

Last week, "Community Matters", hosted by Jim Cameron on Darien TV 79 (Cablevision), ran an interview with leaders of Aging in Place+Gallivant. Community Matters is a local program that looks at the various organizations which make Darien, CT, a better place to live.

Mr. Cameron spoke with AIP+G Executive Director Gina Blum, Board President Dorothy Baker, and former Board President Kaye Barker. They explained how AIP+G's mission is to help Darien seniors live independently, comfortably and with dignity in their own home as long as possible. The organization provides referrals to vetted nonprofit agencies and private service providers, as well as direct services including: transportation, small tasks, shopping and friendly visitors. They are also offering outings and events in conjunction with other community and area organizations, such as the public library, senior center, and Darien Community Association. (Full disclosure, I'm a member of the board and chair of the transportation committee.)
