Aging in Place

AIP

In 2014, the Town of Cumberland, Maine, became aware of the growing need for services for its older citizens. Today that initiative has developed into a thriving, vibrant organization, fueled almost exclusively by an energetic corps of volunteers dedicated to making a difference in the lives of their neighbors as they age. As a result of the efforts of dozens of volunteers and with the full support of town leaders and the Town Council, Aging in Place (AIP) Cumberland offers:

  • Rides to hundreds of older residents each year
  • Provides friendly visitors who develop a caring relationship with the seniors they visit on a regular basis
  • Assists older homeowners who need a hand with yard work, small projects and minor home repairs.
  • Presents a monthly social program for seniors
  • Works with the Fire Department and others to provide durable medical equipment, and a call-in program for those who live alone
