NJV Sponsors Neighbor Network Concept Kick-Off!

What an informative and exciting evening it was at the Glen Rock Borough Hall on Tuesday, May 3rd and an equally exhilarating event at the luncheon on Tuesday, June 14th! And, a third information session – a hybrid event (on Zoom & at Glen Rock Library) is scheduled for 7 PM on September 21st.

A group of residents invites all Glen Rockers to explore a neighbor for neighbor movement that allows seniors to maintain a vibrant quality of life as they live longer. Thirty residents came out for each earlier event - to hear about and share their input on the concept of a neighborhood network for those choosing to age at home in Glen Rock.

Residents Donna Feigenbaum and Teresa Gilbreath lead the event describing a network that gives seniors easier access to information on senior resources as well as finding ways to fill gaps in existing services.

Kathy McCann, who attended the first event and said, "The Village concept provides me with the hope and confidence to face the challenge of advancing senior years. It’s a well-designed, community-based idea…"

This network concept is part of a Village Movement in over 360 US communities composing the Village-to-Village Network.  North Jersey Villages, representing this movement in the Bergen County area, is sponsoring these information sessions.

If you are interested, please visit https://forms.gle/RyHRYQ6pG9VDNsuN9 or call Donna Feigenbaum 201-575-0816.

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…


Vaccinations & Going Forward...

Monkeypox

There is a limited supply of the monkeypox vaccine in New Jersey. Vaccination site In Bergen County: Bergen New Bridge Medical Center, Annex 2 (white tent structure), 230 East Ridgewood Ave., Paramus, NJ 07652.

Anyone with a known contact with someone who tested positive for monkeypox within the past 14 days should contact their health care provider or local health department regarding testing and vaccine eligibility.

Your Five Wishes...

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have heard about so many people who suddenly found themselves in the ICU… Do you wonder if they thought about or planned for a medical emergency such as Covid-19 pandemic- or even a car accident - could precipitate? 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?
