PVM Blog
rss icon

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.

For the last few months, I have been writing about my experience living life without a car. As you might recall, to get groceries I used the app-based service Shipt. This month, in case you might want to try it for yourself, I am going to write in more detail about how it works.

Senior Living Communities Help Seniors Stay Healthy

According to the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA’s) World Factbook, which tracks life expectancy at birth for every country in the world, a surprising truth is revealed: In 2016, with a life expectancy of 79.8 years, the United States was only ranked 42 out of 224 countries.

I am pleased to announce that we have launched a blog on the PVM website. Now you will be able to find very helpful information on everything from avoiding financial exploitation, housing and services, alternative transportation, on-line delivery services, family issues and fun topics such as creating memories with your grandchildren.

This is the fourth article in a series of articles I have been writing about living life without a car. Last month I introduced you to the online, on-demand shopping and home delivery service Shipt. This month I am going to share my experience using it.

Moving Into a Senior Living Community

For many older adults who are currently independent but like the idea of living in a setting where healthcare services are available if needed down the road, a LifePlan Community can be an ideal solution.
