Village programs comprise a full range of services and activities that provide the practical help residents need to live safely and comfortably in their own homes as they grow older. In addition, the Village provides the educational, cultural, and social opportunities to live full lives. ERCV has beend developed as a dynamic, community-based organization to serve an optimistic and resourceful constituency of Ward 4 residents who are determined to find creative ways to live fully and productively throughout their lives. Any of us, at any age, might hesitate to ask our family, friends, and neighbors to help with routine chores and unexpected emergencies. With East Rock Creek Village, convenient help is an easy phone call away.
East Rock Creek Village follows a “volunteer-first” policy. When a request for information or help comes to the office, we look first for a volunteer to respond. Our cadre of volunteers is available to address members’ routine needs and requests, such as rides to stores and doctors’ appointments, light gardening, computer assistance, home checks when you are away, and other convenience services that make life a little easier and less stressful.
Studies have confirmed that most people are happier when fully engaged in community life, socializing with others on a regular basis. The Village offers a monthly calendar of events and programs designed to provide stimulating cultural activities, foster friendships, and nurture a healthy life-style. As the Village evolves, some members will discover they have particular interests in common, from opera and theater to physical fitness and reading books. On the initiative of members themselves, groups have been formed to offer regular get-togethers for meetings and outings. It’s fun to see a movie or read a book but sharing the experience with a congenial group of friends, and talking about it afterwards, enhances the pleasure.
