Capitol Hill Village
Capitol Hill Village is a non-profit membership organization in the heart of our nation’s capital, which offers typical retirement home services in an in-home setting for its members. Developed by a group of local retirees, this organization’s main function is to provide a network of services to individuals so they can continue to live in their own homes as long as possible. Help with everything from in-home healthcare, gardening and household chores is available. This is another great example of older adults taking charge of their future and is a model that can be replicated in other cities, suburbs and rural areas around the country. Visit Capitol Hill Village’s website for more information.

Additional Resources
There are many more facilities and communities in the United States and abroad that are taking the needs of our older loved ones to heart. Following is a list of links to additional aging-in-place communities and long-term care facilities that provide alternatives to everyday care for older adults.
