Aging in Place Programs

Aging in Place Cumberland, underwritten by the town, has a wide range of programs in place to help people stay in their homes as long as possible as they age. A rides program provides free transportation to Cumberland residents 60 and older. Seniors can choose from a myriad of activities—morning gatherings with friends, music presentations, game nights at the library, lectures, author talks, and many other topics of interest. Classes on balance, self-help instruction for those with chronic health conditions, Medicare assistance, and other courses are available. AIP volunteers offer regular visits to homebound and isolated senior residents. Students at Greely and adult volunteers can help with yard work, shoveling, minor handyman repairs, and pet care during an emergency. Stop by the Aging in Place kiosk in Cumberland Town Hall, visit the Aging in Place website at www.AIPCumberland.org , call 207-829-2205, or email AIP@cumberlandmaine.com  for more information.
