For 30 + years, Living At Home Network programs have led the way in building communities that help older adults live safely in their homes and communities. Our member programs mobilize volunteers and other resources to help older adults stay living at home. Services include volunteer visits, transportation, health promotion and individual care planning for each person served. The Living at Home Network provides connections and support to the 32 member programs.
The 32 member programs of the Living at Home Network (LAHN) have helped older adults navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic through creative outreach that reduces the social isolation from coronavirus restrictions, gets needed food and supplies into the home and provides rides and other assistance older adults need. Programs co-hosted COVID vaccine clinics and helped clients overcome online sign-up and transportation barriers to being vaccinated. They also creatively addressed fundraising challenges, such as seeking support from unexpected sources who saw the importance of their work during a pandemic crisis. Member programs keep moving forward by maintaining their core approach to serving community.
Between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021, LAHN members served 8,560 older adults. A total of 2,154 volunteers delivered more than 54,000 hours of service.
