If you missed the presentation at our April general meeting about ElderHelp's services that are available to TVSD members, below are some of the details:
- ElderHelp's Seniors A Go Go Program provides transportation to seniors age 60+ to medical appointments and social activities.
- Volunteers will pick you up from your home and take you to your destination, within a 15 mile radius.
- Once enrolled, a 7-day notice is required to schedule a ride.
- Please note that due to the increase in need for transportation services, there is currently a wait list for this program. However, when you call to inquire, please mention that you are a member of TVSD, and your application will be flagged. ElderHelp will be able to complete your enrollment process once we have identified volunteers in your community that are able to help you.
If you are looking for a ride to the grocery store or other errands, please call ElderHelp to learn more about the "Concierge Club Program". Through this program, you could be matched up with a volunteer to help with ongoing assistance and the enrollment process may be a lot faster!
What Happens Next?
The Care Committee will hold a
Member-To-Member Forum meeting
Have you ever experienced a death in the family or the death of a close friend?
Are you the executor of their estate, or do you wonder what the executor of your estate will have to do. Do you struggle with grief or depression because of your loss?
The TVSD care committee will provide a time and place to discuss these issues, and any others related to death and grief that you would like to discuss.
We don’t claim to be experts; we just see a need for Villagers to discuss their experiences and learn from each other.
Please come to our May Member- to- Member Forum on “What Happens Next"
Tuesday, May 16 th from 12:30-1:30/2:00pm

It’s Not Too Early!
Village Historian Trish Newbill wants to remind everyone that plans are being formulated for celebrating the TVSD Tenth Anniversary, coming up early in 2018! Your input is being solicited for ideas on the best way to memorialize this milestone. Also very useful would be documents, photos and mementos related to the early days of the Village, and testimonials about just what the Village means to you.
Please contact Trish if you have any of the above to offer, or can help her put this project together!
