Working together to remain in our own homes as we age.

The Athens Village members Culinary Conversation

The Athens Village is

Not a place, but a community
living securely
in their own homes.  

You can be:

In charge
In contact
You can be home

In short, The Athens Village is a group of neighbors working together to help each of us age gracefully in our own homes.

Our Mission:

Enable members to live independently, comfortably and safely in their homes.

Our Vision:

A dynamic, responsive community of members who support meaningful and fulfilling lives for one another.

Research, including that of insurance companies, has shown that people are much better off in their own homes than in assisted living facilities. The Athens Village works with a number of local, regional and national agencies to further the interests of its members.
