There’s no place like ‘Home’ for the holidays

This holiday season, seniors are celebrating at home, in Wilton. More than 70 members, volunteers, and friends enjoyed an evening of fun, food and fellowship at Stay at Home in Wilton’s annual holiday party. On Dec. 11, partygoers were joyfully entertained by The TrebleMakers, who invited the audience to sing along to familiar holiday classics.

The organization is grateful to the Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association (RVNA) and the Wilton Congregational Church whose generous sponsorship of the 2015 Holiday Party truly honored the spirit of the season. President Barbara Quincy recognized the sponsors and volunteers for their tremendous support this year.  

The holiday party is a festive gathering that brings the community of Stay at Home in Wilton together to celebrate the season and also gives members an opportunity to thank the coordinators, drivers, and repairmen for their services. Volunteers are the heart of the organization; providing rides to appointments, events, weekly grocery shopping trips, assistance at educational programs, social activities, and cultural trips. They also provide home repair services, computer help, and household assistance so members can live in their own homes comfortably, conveniently, and safely.

Seniors can celebrate the holidays at home, enjoying the connections to friends and memories they have created in the community they love. Today families are scattered and often do not have the ability to help their parents when they need it. Aging in place is natural and healthy.

Stay at Home in Wilton is a nonprofit organization, governed by seniors, promoting the health and well-being of Wilton seniors by providing a safety net and an opportunity to age in place. Information: stayathomeinwilton.org.
