About Senior Community Connections

"Friendly visits from board members bearing treats and local news were much appreciated. I strongly suggest that any senior or senior couple become acquainted with the many kinds of services available.”

Do you know someone who might benefit from our enriching and supportive senior services?

Senior Community Connections is a non-profit organization that helps older adults in the Lake Norman area remain independent and engaged in their community. Our members live in a variety of residences including single family homes and apartments, senior housing, and continuing care communities. Some live alone, while others live with family members or in group settings.

Through a trusted network of vetted volunteers, Senior Community Connection provides assistance with transportation, technology support, personal advocacy and information, minor household repairs, friendly visits and calls, and help with day-to-day errands. Members and their families have peace of mind knowing that local support is only ‘a phone call away’.

Our Goals

Senior Community Connections came out of an interest in establishing an organization of “neighbors helping neighbors,” inspired by the proven success of Boston’s Beacon Hill Village, operating since 2002.  Currently there are more than 300 such villages in operation or in various stages of development throughout the U.S., organized nationally through the Village to Village Network (www.vtvnetwork.org). Our goal is to help seniors age in place, where they feel comfortable.

Mission

We will enrich the lives of older adults, empowering them to thrive in home and community by providing a network of trusted resources, caring support and social connectedness.



Vision 

Senior Community Connections thinks globally an acts locally as change agents to redefine what it mean to age in America.

The Characteristics
of a Village

Villages are “volunteer first,” organizations that use trained volunteers to deliver services

Considerate & Helpful

Volunteers provide services such as transportation, shopping, household chores, gardening, and light home repairs and maintenance for members. These services fill the gaps in existing public services.

Solutions-Oriented

Villages provide “one call does it all” support and problem-solving for their members. Villages positively impact isolation, interdependence, health and purpose of their individual members to reduce overall cost of care.

Community Focused

Villages positively impact isolation, interdependence, health and purpose of their individual members to reduce overall cost of care. Villages build relationships and develop community through social activities such as potlucks, book clubs, exercise/wellness activities, and educational and cultural programs.
