About our model
Palisades Village is a Washington, D.C. community focused on enabling older adults to remain in their homes, living independently, comfortably, and safely as long as possible.
We are aligned with the national “Aging in Community” movement, which aims to help older adults and Baby Boomers continue to reside at home without burdening their family members with caretaking responsibilities as they age.
We help our residents thrive in their community by providing access to a network of volunteers who help with requests, and hosting social events and gatherings.
Our organization was founded in 2007, and has continued to grow each year. Learn more about our history.
About our members
Palisades Village is a diverse, multigenerational group of individuals who represent a wide spectrum of cultures, traditions and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our members include retired attorneys, poets, bankers, health care professionals, former government employees, and individuals from many other disciplines — ranging in age from 50 to 100. Our volunteers include professionals, tradespeople, students, retirees and residents of all ages from the northwest Washington, D.C. community.
Palisades Village has built a community which is connected by a common goal – to support one another socially, emotionally and physically in such a way that allows older residents to remain safely in their homes and actively engaged in their local environment.
