WISE Connections: A Village Movement Backgrounder | KCET
The Village Movement is a grassroots organization that builds a community of support around a senior so that they can remain in their own homes. CEO of WISE Connections Grace Cheng Braun explains how this unique organization provides services to the elderly living on their own, particularly where family members or partners can no longer help. For a yearly membership fee, these seniors have access to service providers that will assist them with daily living responsibilities, from driving to a doctor's appointment to grocery shopping to caring for their residence when they are away. With one phone call, village members have every need and concern taken care of, making life on their own comfortable, enjoyable and safe.
