You’re living on your own. Your health is good, but sometimes you worry about the future. Your children may live in another state, and you’re not sure whom you can turn to when everyday needs or major concerns confront you.

You love your home and neighborhood.

You don’t want to think about living anywhere else or being dependent on strangers.

The solution for you is right here in Woodstock and its surrounding communities.

Your neighbors have formed STAYING IN PLACE, our own non-profit membership organization inspired by the nationwide “Aging in Place” movement, the first of its kind in this part of the Hudson Valley.
