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.
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 are exploring 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.
The Rides for Seniors Program through Mobility Matters offers residents free, door-through-door rides to medical appointments and for basic necessities such as grocery shopping. As our partner, Mobility Matters also manages rides for Lamorinda Village members to our events and activities as needed.
Our friends at the Lafayette, Moraga, and Orinda Libraries are supporting Lamorinda Village through their regular programs for older adults.
