Help for Seniors

Polly Brown and Jane Hawkes of Vineyard Village at Home will be guest speakers on Friday, June 18, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Oak Bluffs Senior Center.

Vineyard Village at Home is a volunteer organization offering support services for older Islanders who need help to remain in their homes.

The organization is a subscription service that offers referrals to volunteers and discounted services. For those who need help — a ride to a church supper, small home repairs, arranging for health care — the service can be the difference between staying at home or moving in with relatives or into a health-care facility.
