Home Matters Helps Elderly Stay in Community April 30, 2010
Dr. Barbara Corona, psychotherapist and President of the Board of Hudson Valley Home Matters (HVHM), and Ruth Kaba, a member of the Board, discuss their nonprofit “aging-in-place organization,” dedicated to helping those over 50 remain in their homes. Many senior citizens for various reasons need help to continue living active, independent lives but do not want to move to an assisted living facility, away from their local friends and family. Home Matters recognizes the importance of retaining senior wisdom and other contributions in the local community. HVHM is part of a national movement modeled after Beacon Hill in Boston, Staying Put in New Canaan, Connecticut, and Capital Hill Village in Washington, DC, all well established organizations.
