Institute on Aging Collaborates With New Program San Francisco Village
Date:11/24/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- In preparation for its January 1, 2009 opening, San Francisco Village-Northside (SFV-N) announces its partnership with San Francisco's highly regarded Institute on Aging (IOA).

SFV-N is an innovative, nonprofit, membership-based, "aging-in-place" program designed to help older adults and those who care for them live in their own homes, apartments, and neighborhoods as long as they wish or are able. A model that is sweeping the nation by providing affordable support through social connection, volunteer and multigenerational opportunities, assistance with daily tasks, and health and wellness activities, SFV-N is the first such program to be established in San Francisco.

According to IOA CEO David Werdegar, "SFV-N and IOA share the goal of empowering older adults to live independently while providing resources to make this possible. IOA's mission is to enhance the quality of life for adults as they age by enabling them to maintain their health, well-being, independence, and participation in the community. SFV-N is a welcome addition to the continuum of services for older adults in San Francisco." As part of their partnership, SFV-N is opening its office in IOA's 3330 Geary Street building this month.

According to AARP, 80% of people 55 years or older want to stay in their own homes as they age. SFV-N provides an alternative to "independent" or assisted living facilities for these community residents. SFV-N's members will be those who are healthy and active as well as those who require more medical and in-home assistance. They will have a central number to call for the information, referrals, and connections they need.

SFV-N's partnership with IOA is one of many new avenues it is taking to extend the reach and impact of the many high quality services already available in San Francisco. Rather than create new services itself, SFV-N's approach is to hel
