Northampton Neighbors (NN) encourages independent, engaged lives as we grow older.
We are a community of neighbors helping each other with our daily tasks. We are that friendly neighbor who offers a "cup of sugar" just when you need it. Membership is free and open to all ages. All members of Northampton Neighbors are welcome at events, gatherings and Interest Groups, but to receive services you must be 55+ and live in Northampton, Florence or Leeds.
Our members enjoy a wide and growing variety of services and care, enabling them to remain in their homes and continue to enjoy their network of friends and activities. Here are a few of the services we offer:
Small fixes like changing a bulb to big tasks like flipping a mattress
Occasional garden help
Technical assistance: Set up phone, email, Skype, apps, electronic devices and smart speakers etc
Provide companionship and conversation
Offer respite for a caregiver
Social gatherings and Interest Groups
Rides to appointments, social events, meetings and book clubs as well as grocery shopping and errands.
At the heart of our mission are the enthusiastic NN members and people of all ages who volunteer to help our members continue to live independently. Many members who receive services enjoy the experience so much that they decide to offer services in return. It is a sweet give and take.
We are building a community that encourages independent, engaged lives as we grow older. Please join us.
