Capital City Village is dedicated to creating a community of members, volunteers and services providing participating seniors the help and information they need to successfully age in place. We envision a community of seniors creating a virtual village enabling aging in place with dignity, health, fun and social interaction.
Our volunteers are a talented group with widely varied backgrounds. A number of CCV members act as volunteers, while non-member volunteers are recruited from the community at large. Our volunteers are screened by CCV management and must attend an orientation class. Each is motivated by a desire to serve others and make a difference in our community. We’re always looking for volunteers to provide new services and recreational activities. Volunteers can help change a member’s hard-to-reach light bulbs; show them how to set up or use a new computer or an e-mail account; drive them to the store or to a medical appointment; help them organize their files, bills and monthly payments; chop some weeds in their garden; or occasionally walk their dog. The CCV office puts out via e-mail regular calls for volunteer assistance. Volunteers are generally expected to participate monthly in at least one or two activities or calls for assistance. Members are eligible to receive up to three services per week, whether those be a combination of rides or other volunteer services.
