Neighbor to Neighbor Programs

The Housing Committee works to promote communities that are age friendly by promoting Neighbor to Neighbor Programs and the creation of affordable, accessible senior housing.

Helping Seniors Age in Place:

Interested in finding out about ways to make your community more age friendly? Download the free “How to Create a Neighbor to Neighbor Program in your Community” manual available below. It’s an easy to follow handbook that provides advice from area residents who have created programs in their communities and lists resources you can access if you’d like help creating a Neighbor to Neighbor Program in your community.

"One good thing about the Kingspoint Neighbor to Neighbor Program is the Buddy System. Through this program, I know help is available and I can call on people when I need it." - Ursula Murden, Co-founder, Kingspoint Neighbor to Neighbor Program

Providing the information needed when a person can no longer safely remain in their own home:

The Housing Committee has offered a number of forums to provide seniors and their adult children the information they need to determine when it’s appropriate to considering moving to an independent living community or an assisted living facility as well as things to consider when visiting such facilities.

Below are Powerpoint presentations and materials distributed at the March 2013 forum entitled, “The Most Important Questions to ask if You or a Loved One is Considering Moving to an Assisted Living Facility.”
