Greater Niles Village, a partnership with the City of Fremont Human Services Department, is hosting an educational event about home modifications on Saturday, April 28. The program, which will focus on affordable ways to modify your home for functional and comfortable living at all ages and abilities, will include presentations by Dale Hardware and LIFE ElderCare, and feature displays and refreshments.
Presentations will cover a fall-prevention program and will include a wide variety of home fixtures and hardware available that allow seniors to remain safely in their homes. Displays will feature an accessible shower, lighting, plumbing and other hardware that allow people to remain in their homes safely and with dignity.
In addition, the Steering Committee for Greater Niles Village will update the audience about its progress in forming Fremont’s first village. The “Village Movement” is a burgeoning, world-wide movement that champions an alternative approach for adults as they grow older. Villages are unique in that they are created by and for older adults, empowering their members to make wise, safe, and vibrant choices about how they wish to live.
Currently in formation, Greater Niles Village’s mission is to create a caring community, neighbors of all ages helping each other, so that residents can thrive in their homes and engage with the community. Greater Niles Village is a nonprofit, member-driven organization dedicated to assisting members to age safely and successfully in their own homes.
The entire Fremont community is invited to join Greater Niles Village from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 28 at the Niles Discovery Church Fellowship Hall (36600 Niles Blvd, Fremont, CA 94536). To attend, please pre-register online, or simply drop in.
