History

Our History

"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.”

Senior Community Connections (SCC) is the outgrowth of seeds planted in 2006

SCC (formerly Davidson Village Network) was formed when the Town of Davidson’s mayor, Randy Kincaid, formed the Aging in Place Task Force. The team arose out of concern about how to address societal needs with the coming of age of the baby boomer population. In 2008 a report of findings was issued to illuminate specific areas for improvement to enhance seniors’ quality of life in Davidson. The task force evolved into the Davidson Committee on Aging (DCOA) that has since become Senior Community Connections, focusing on providing older adult services.

Senior Community Connections is now a member of the Village to Village Network for peer-to-peer help in establishing and managing its own Village.

Objectives

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.
