Presbyterian Villages of Michigan is committed to serving seniors and communities. It’s our goal to be a first-line provider of resources, including information. Aging should be an adventure, not a scary trip!

In the PVM Blog, the experts at PVM will regularly publish articles and information. Topics may range from smart ways to age in place in your long-time home, to tips on how to shop for a senior community. We will have articles on transportation, wellness, nutrition, technology, activities, outlook-on-life, and more.

Known for new beginnings, August has historically been the month we transition from summer to fall at month’s end. This year summer has been quite strange as we continue to follow guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID. It is frustrating for certain. All of us are beginning to feel a bit restless. PVM staff is doing all we can to help get us through this next stage and onto better times.

“These are the times that try men’s souls”, so wrote Thomas Paine on December 23, 1776. Considered by some to be among America’s Founding Fathers, he continued his essay as follows, “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”

July 4, 1776. This is the date on which the Continental Congress, representing the 13 original colonies officially declared its independence from Great Britain thus giving birth to a new nation. Traditionally, we call this day “Independence Day”. In the era of COVID-19, I propose we give it a new name. I suggest we instead call it “Interdependence Day”.
