A wonderful program that provides seniors with the resources to stay engaged and manage their lives while aging in their own homes. With a tiny staff and a dedicated group of volunteers GV punches well above its weight allowing members to remain active participants in our community well into their later years.
As one of the founding members of GV, I am impressed daily with how much our members use our services and how important they are to insure that each one of us can remain in our own homes as we grow older.
Gramatan Village is a membership organization that enables individuals over 55 years old live comfortably and safely in their own homes and remain in the community they love.
The staff at GV is very experienced and is supported by volunteers and community partners who are available at all times to offer assistance in many ways. They offer many cultural educational and social outings yo prevent social isolation, offer counseling and support groups, provide transportation and help with household tasks and much much more.
My experience with them has been exceptional.
At some point in life, one checks out of the organizations that educated and stimulated you in your career. Foundations, think tanks, councils for this and that all become distant as one ages. How does one recreate that sense of community and mutual learning after one retires? I found the source of my ongoing education in Gramatan Village. Living in my own apartment and attending programs of the Village -- a book group, a well spouse group, a men's group, a sale at a local merchant , all became possible through Gramatan Village. Gramatan Village replaced what had been vibrant in my early life. My life is vibrant again!!
Gramatan Village does a great job keeping seniors connected to each other in enjoyable ways like book clubs, game days, luncheons and events, and also in providing support services. I very much enjoy the literary book club and poetry group, and have gotten practical help with medical insurance, computers and transportation from Gramatan Village. Both Sherry and Kathryn are gracious, friendly and helpful to all of us, and the volunteers are great too.
Gramatan Village is a nonprofit partner with RSVP of Westchester. We send volunteers to assist with activities for their members. The personnel is super open to using the volunteers' unique talents. If a volunteer has an idea for an activity or program, they'll listen with big ears. I am happy to have a place to send my "big thinking" volunteers. Additionally, they are a partner extraordinaire - keeping in mind how we can work together on so many levels. It's a mutually beneficial relationship.
I have been working with Gramatan Village for a few years now and can honestly say that they are a first class organization. Sherry and Kathryn are truly professional and care very deeply about their members and their community. The programs available are top notch. Gramatan Village is such a tremendous resource for the Bronxville community. I highly recommend people explore all they have to offer.
GV is an amazing organization, one I'm proud to be associated with. It offers a wide array of social opportunities as well as supportive services to seniors who wish to continue as active and engaged community members.
Gramatan Village does an incredible job at helping our senior citizens stay independent and in their homes for a longer period. The staff and the cadre of giving volunteers are dedicated to the cause. It is a truly wonderful organization.
