VC Programs Link with Seniors

Our RSVP and Chore programs were on hand when the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce sponsored its first-ever Senior Adult Health Fair on October 13 at the Ridgewood Y. Co-sponsored by Van Dyk Manor, Valley Hospital, and Distinctive Care, the event was attended by more than 100 seniors who received valuable information about healthcare and heard presentations about Medicare, home health care and home safety.

Representatives of RSVP and Chore provided information and answered questions about our services, which include placement of volunteers in meaningful positions (RSVP) and engaging volunteer handymen/handywomen to provide minor home repairs for the elderly or disabled (Chore).

Healthy snacks and drinks were provided courtesy of Kings Super Market of Ridgewood. Special thanks to Kevin Brendlen of Van Dyk Manor for generously sponsoring our table at the event!
