Videos of the Village Movement

The "Nightly News" series called Trading Places features stories from the NBC News family, and how we help care for our aging parents. This story features Brian Williams' in-laws, who are part of a movement rejecting the idea of moving late in life to a retirement community or an assisted living facility.

Laguna Beach Seniors is reaching beyond the walls of the Susi Q to provide programs, services, and advocacy that help us live safely in our homes and in the hometown we love. Preferably forever.

"Were they going to wait for the government to create a better way for them to age? Absolutely not." Nearly 12,000 Americans turn 65 every day, the majority of whom aren't ready to leave their homes. Judy Willett discusses a common sense "neighbor helping neighbor" approach that started in Beacon Hill and has grown into an international Village movement that's making it possible for elders to continue to flourish in the communities in which they love to live.

The Power Behind the Village Movement

The average American over the age of 65 will need roughly three years of long-term care, on average, according to government estimates. To get that care in a nursing home costs about $72,000 per year. But from D.C. to Massachusetts, Minnesota to California, Americans are devising innovative plans to help more people save money and stay in their homes longer.

It Takes a Village

For many aging seniors, a retirement home can feel like an unfamiliar and undesirable place to live. Fortunately, there are many new programs that allow seniors to receive help while living at home. The Villiage to Village network is one of these.
