CRESTWOOD CITIZENS ASSOCIATION

WASHINGTON, DC       |       ESTABLISHED 1941

The Crestwood Citizens Association has a number of initiatives to assist older adults remain in their homes safely. For more information please contact olderadults@crestwooddc.org

The Aging-In-Place Action Team's goal is to help neighbors obtain the services needed to continue living in their homes as they age. Our first task is to identify neighbors who need and want services. Our next task is to identify neighbors and other community resources that can provide services.

We must also determine how best to connect those in need of services with service providers and resources. To that end, we are asking that neighbors interested in receiving services (including neighbors who may not have access to the listserv or the Crest), and those who know of or are interested in providing services or volunteering to help, contact us at olderadults@crestwooddc.org or at 202-723-0360.

Examples of services include, but are not limited to:

  • Grocery shopping
  • Dog walking
  • Leaf raking and snow shoveling
  • Running errands

For example, the Aging-In-Place Action Team, as one of its initiatives to assist older adults remain in their homes safely, connects neighbors that have volunteered to help shovel snow with older adults in the neighborhood that have requested such help.

If you would like to volunteer to be contacted when there is a snow event to see if you are available to shovel snow for a neighbor, please send an email to the Aging-In-Place Action Team at olderadults@crestwooddc.org.

Please note that this initiative is distinct from and supplements the District's Resident Snow Team. Additional safety tips for older adults can be found here.
