At Home in Darien – Transportation Service

Program Description:

Prior to 2009, several groups (including the First Congregational Church of Darien’s Women’s Association, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Darien Human Services,

and the Human Services Planning Council) endeavored to bring the AGING IN PLACE concept to Darien. Aging in place is a term used to describe people living in the residence of their choice as they age for as long as they are able. With collaboration, research, assessment, and planning, a pilot program funded by The Community Fund of Darien was formed in 2009. The organization, named Aging in Place in Darien, began offering services and helping residents to remain at home in Darien. Gallivant also served the older adults of Darien providing transportation to Darien seniors. Discussion of merging the two organizations began and in 2011, the two organizations came together to create Aging in Place+Gallivant, an independent, charitable, nonprofit with its own Board of Directors and an Executive Director. In 2013, the Aging in Place+Gallivant Board of Directors renamed the organization At Home In Darien to more clearly communicate its mission of helping Darien seniors live independently, comfortably and with dignity in their own homes. Over the past 10 years, services have been expanded, and new ones have been added, in order to meet the needs of Darien’s growing senior population.

Almost Home has a solution for families or individuals at a critical crossroads in their lives.

When an elderly or developmentally disabled adult can no longer stay at home unsupervised and a caregiver needs help providing the individual’s care or needs respite to sustain his or her own health or must work outside the home, then Almost Home can provide the answer you need.

Our homelike Center features professional medical services as well as therapeutic activities that foster socialization and sensorimotor stimulation; hot, nutritious meals; and safe, reliable door-to-door transportation – all provided by a caring, courteous staff.

The programs and services provided by Almost Home offer a solution that can postpone, as long as possible, the placing of a loved one into an institution such as an assisted living facility or nursing home. Almost no one wants to give up living in their own home. Some do not want “strangers” in their house. Ours is a cost effective solution that allows your loved one to stay in their own home and in their own community.

Don’t let your loved one’s reluctance or adamant refusal to attend keep you from considering this alternative. Most members initially do not want to attend. However, after they experience our helpful, friendly staff, therapeutic activities, fellowship with other members, a warm safe environment and just plain fun, they look forward to attending Almost Home to be with their new friends.
