Safe at Home Committee Hosts Meet and Greet

Hillsdale’s Safe at Home Committee is hosting a Meet and Greet at Town Hall on Saturday, May 18 at 10 am. The goal of the meeting is to hear seniors and caregivers discuss their needs and assess how the Town and its Safe at Home Committee can better serve them. The meeting will be interactive and everyone is encouraged to participate. Beverages and light refreshments will be served.

Newly established in 2018, the Safe at Home Committee distributed a Resource Booklet in Fall 2018, which described a range of services that County agencies and non-profit organizations offer. This was a first step to help seniors learn about available services.

The Committee wants to ensure that we hear directly from seniors and caregivers about their concerns and special needs. In addition to our conversation, the Committee is asking seniors to fill out a needs assessment Survey that they will receive in the mail. It’s a simple two-page questionnaire that will help the Committee design effective programs.

The overarching goals of the Meet and Greet and the Survey is for the Safe at Home Committee to be an on-going resource for information and programs, and to build a strong community that helps us all to age in place safely.
