Collabria Care will soon launch its UpValley Village, a non-profit membership organization serving adults 60+ from Yountville to Calistoga. It is a “concierge” one-stop resource for needed in-home services and activities. Village staff will match members with local volunteers to help with small household projects, transportation and friendly visits. The Village will also be a resource for screened professional service providers and social activities. The vision is to create a support system of local connections so that older adults will remain in their homes and communities as long as possible.
Building on the Collabria’s volunteer model, the Village is seeking committed volunteers to be part of the program. Volunteering for the Village is not only a way to give back to our communities but to help sustain the health and diversity of our up valley neighborhoods.
