Our Vision: A community of seniors who feel safe and comfortable in their homes, enjoy the many benefits of lasting friendships and engaging social activities, and have a reliable place to turn when they need help or have questions.

Our Mission: To enable Greenwich seniors to confidently age in place by providing stimulating social and educational programs and assistance with matters of health and safety.                                     

We are At Home Together

At Home in Greenwich Inc. is here to support our members during this pandemic crisis! Now more than ever, your generous support can help keep seniors living in their own homes.

 

We are dedicated to keeping our members living in the home they love and the community they know.  This is especially important in times of crisis.

We continue our mission during this pandemic and are available by phone should there be a need.  We know that at the top of your list is food, medication and social connection.

Call the office (203) 422.2342 for one on one discussions and check ins. 

During this difficult time, let’s be physically distant but socially connected!

At Home in Greenwich is here to support ALL of our neighbors during this health crisis. We invite the greater Greenwich senior community to join us by participating in programming that we have been able to shift from in person gatherings to conference calls!

See our revised social calendar for teleconferencing with other members and our video conferencing programs. 

 TALK TO SOMEONE EVERY DAY! 

To facilitate more member to member contact, we have set up a teleconference call and we are also on ZOOM.  

Teleconference Number: (425) 436-6335, Access Code: 794596#

Please let us know if you need instruction with the teleconference system or ZOOM video conference.  If you weren’t feeling isolated before, you may have those feelings now.  We can help.  Call us (203) 422.2342

 

Don’t forget to talk to someone every day.  We are happy to be that someone!

June 8th Living Room Chat “Polarization in America” 10:00AM ZOOM

Presented by Marv Berenblum, Mary Lou Carraher & Mary Powers

Our country has increasingly been beset by societal divisions which hamper our forward movement on key national challenges. The question now is whether there are prospective changes in public opinion which will foster a sense of coming together. For example, will COVID 19’s disproportionate social, political, and economic impact serve as a basis for finding common ground? Will the consequences of the protest demonstrations across our country bring more of a sense of urgency to addressing the racial divide? These are some of the impediments and opportunities for social progress which we will consider in our discussion.

               

 

June 18th Relating to the Global War on Terror Mission to previous Major Armed Conflict 10:00AM ZOOM

Presented by Colin Brodmerkel

Colin Brodmerkel, a local Greenwich resident and At Home volunteer, will provide a synopsis of his experiences in the military, particularly dissecting his time deployed to Kumar Province, Afghanistan in 2011 as a Platoon Leader. The discussion will also compare and contrast present-day conflict to previous eras of our military history. Major Colin Brodmerkel is recently concluding 11 years of active duty service in the Army as an Infantry officer and will soon be joining the CT Army National Guard this August. His most recent position was an Assistant Professor of Military Science at the US Military Academy, West Point. 

 

 

June 22nd Living Room Chat “Tension Between Nationalism & Globalism” 10:00AM ZOOM

Presented by Marv Berenblum, Mary Lou Carraher & Mary Powers

We live in an increasingly interconnected world which can offer advantages in more efficient ways to conduct business, in addressing climate change, and dealing with pandemics and other global issues. However, there are potential liabilities that come with globalism, including loss of jobs through consolidation, potential encroachment on individual liberties, and limits to flexibility in addressing national interests. We will discuss these advantages and disadvantages and see if we can find a reasonable balance between these two competing concepts.
