CHV is a network of neighbors helping neighbors, where volunteers unite to help older adults age comfortably in their own homes. When a villager is in need, some 250 volunteers are ready to provide a ride to the doctor or grocery store, help with housekeeping or meal preparation, gardening advice, and even sidewalk shoveling. For major repairs, home care assistance, or medical support, CHV efficiently links members with community-vetted vendors and partners. For neighbors with low incomes, discounted membership dues provide what all members receive, plus financial assistance with essential health needs. Informative lectures, theater outings, exercise classes, and urban hikes provide opportunities to learn and socialize. In a country that anticipates doubling its older population by 2050, CHV is a leader in holistic, community-based care and continues to offer online and hybrid services — because aging at home should never mean aging alone.
