California Demands More Options for Aging Well

Moderate and middle-income Californians have few options for aging with self determination—even though they comprise the largest population of those 65+ in age.

Villages and their members need a change agent, an advocacy organization that can work with the state and local policymakers to develop policies and programs that ensure that all Californians can choose from options for aging support that fit their needs and desires.

Village Movement California is working with the statewide and local senior services networks, stakeholders and policymakers to raise awareness of the village model and garner their support for funding, legislation, and programs to support it.

Diablo Valley Villages

Three villages located in Central Costa County – Clayton Valley Village, Lamorinda Village and Walnut Creek Village –  have banded together to bring practical help and neighborly community to seniors in their region. The three community-based villages together serve seniors who may need “a little help from their friends” as well as professional resource referrals to remain safely and comfortably in their homes as they age.
