NJV’S CAMPAIGN: FILE OF LIFE CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE!

Giving Tuesday, November 30, 2021, marks official launch of North Jersey Village’s campaign to provide File of Life for 200,000+ seniors in Bergen County.

Please support NJV’s mission to maximize health and safety options for Bergen County residents age 60+ choosing to age at home…

What? File of Life (FOL) supplies a medical history form to be completed and then folded into a pouch with magnet to be placed on the refrigerator (and you can make a copy of form to be carried on your person when away from home). See a FOL video on YouTube.

Why? When an emergency strikes, every second could count…

File of Life would have you covered…

How?

  • Completing and updating an easy File of Life form insures that your prescriptions, medical status and history are conveniently available.
  • By making this vital information immediately available to first responders, the File of Life completed form can determine quality of care you receive and more timely treatment decisions that could make the difference between life and death in an emergency.
  • File of Life is recognized nationwide by local EMTs, police departments, and fire departments.

DONATE TODAY Support NJV’s mission to maximize health and safety options for Bergen County residents age 60+ choosing to age at home… by supporting NJV’s project to work with local first responders to make the File of Life (customized with local contact information) available throughout Bergen County…

  • Donate $5 to provide 5 FOL packets
  • Donate $20 to provide 20 FOL packets
  • Donate $100 to provide 100 FOL packets
  • Or any amount of your choosing

TURNING AWAY FROM NURSING HOMES, TO WHAT?

The NJV HUB Village is one of the 270 villages cited in a recent New York Times article about options to institutional care…

“Innovations are also occurring nationally at the grassroots level.  A network of nonprofit 'villages' devoted to providing support and a social network to people who want to age in their homes has been growing for years; it has 270 member groups and 70 more in development. Villages typically cover a specific neighborhood or town, but they are virtual support organizations.  ‘It’s really a neighbors helping neighbors approach,’ said Barbara Hughes Sullivan, the network’s national director.” (Read more...

Open to residents age 60 and over, the NJV HUB Village can provide this neighborly support and a social network for those who choose to age in their homes in Bergen County. Join us…

Does it raise questions about how you could plan in advance  for your care if ever you could not speak for yourself – as a result of an unexpected medical emergency or even deterioration of your cognitive function?
