Lamorinda Village makes every effort to meet the needs of our members through services, programs,
and referrals. Across the country, many Villages have established mutually beneficial partnerships
with institutions and organizations such as hospitals, colleges, and universities.
Community and strategic partners provide Villages with important member benefits and resources.
In return, strategic partners receive public recognition for their support, broaden their community base,
and enjoy the cachet of forming a cutting-edge alliance.
At Lamorinda Village, we are continuing to explore this opportunity to bring valuable services and
programs to our members. As of spring 2015, we have established partnerships with St. Mary’s College,
as well as the three branches of the Contra Costa Library system that serve our communities. Both
the College and the library system offer a wealth of cultural and educational resources that help make
Lamorinda an enriching place to live.
Our friends at the Lafayette, Moraga. and Orinda Libraries
are supporting Lamorinda Village through their regular programs for older adults.
The Rides for Seniors Program through SHS offers residents free, door-through-door rides to medical appointments and for basic necessities such as grocery shopping. As our partner, SHS also manages rides for Lamorinda Village members to our events and activities as needed.
The Lafayette Orinda Presbyterian Church and Lamorinda Village operate as a community partnership – it is an active, supportive, and growing relationship.
|Lamorinda Village and John Muir Health recently finalized an agreement to explore the potential for collaboration between John Muir Health and Lamorinda Village, with the intent of having this partnership serve as a model for other local Villages in the future. The community partnership agreement broadly outlines three programs for the pilot phase: integrating Village and John Muir Health program offerings, developing a medpal program in which volunteers may accompany Village members to medical appointments, and developing a program for assisting with the coordination of care for Village members being released from the hospital.|
