Membership gives you access to a supportive community and local resources dedicated to helping seniors remain active and independent.
There are nearly 55 million Americans age 65 and older, and that number is rising. Those older adults are overwhelmingly choosing to stay in their own homes and communities as they age.
Staying Put in New Canaan helps people to continue living independently and comfortably in their own home and community. We are part of a nationwide “aging in place” movement that promotes life satisfaction, a positive quality of life, and self-esteem – all of which are needed to remain happy, healthy, and well as one ages.
Become a member – we offer support, services, and social connection. Membership provides peace of mind for older adults and their families.
