PVM Blog

“Serving Seniors & Communities” is Presbyterian Villages of Michigan’s tagline and our commitment. 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.

Improving safety and comfort with smart home and IoT (Internet of Things) technology

This is the third article in a series of articles I have been writing about living life without a car when my car was in the shop for some minor repairs. Last month I shared my experience using Lyft for transportation. This month I am going to introduce you to Shipt.

Senior living communities are embracing intergenerational programs and experiencing the magic inherent in them.

Almost everyone I know has embraced social media. With the upcoming holidays it will help families stay in touch with each other even if they cannot be with each other in person. For me, nothing compares to a tea party with my granddaughter on FaceTime to tide me over until our next visit.

In last month’s column I shared that due to some minor repair work I spent a little over a week without a car, yet still had things to do and places to be. Heeding the advice of my daughter’s boyfriend, I decided to look for apps I could download onto my smartphone that would help address this dilemma.
