Where We Started: Pasadena Village is a community of older adults from the greater Pasadena area who have joined together to help one another as we navigate the challenges and opportunities of aging in our own homes. The history of Pasadena Village recounts how a group of friends began looking ahead to find a more formal way to maintain their friendly and helpful spirit. That effort grew from an initial meeting into the active, vibrant organization that is Pasadena Village today. Pasadena Village is now part of both a national movement and part of the Village Movement California.
RUN BY MEMBERS
Our members run Small Group Gatherings such as discussions, seminars and walking and hiking groups. Our Committees plan cultural activities, social activities, educational programs and support groups for a wide range of needs. Those who join the Board of Directors work alongside community members. While helping to run our organization, these groups offer opportunities for leadership and making new friends.
WHAT WE OFFER
The Pasadena Village is committed to helping older adults age in place. As a community of seniors, we offer opportunities for learning, personal development, creative activity, and social engagement. We help one another or call on volunteers to assist with small tasks like grocery shopping, household chores, technology and transportation to medical facilities.
Our full Calendar of Events provides for participation in a variety of meaningful activities, including intellectual stimulation, entertainment, leadership opportunities, learning how to age in the best ways possible and making new friends. As friends and members, we support each in ways you can see on our Member Support page and take advantage of volunteer help from members of the surrounding community.
