Tarsy Named to Wellesley at Home Board
Posted by Mark Lippolt — January 20, 2012
Wellesley at Home is a nonprofit organization with the mission of enabling its members who are residents of the town to remain independent and continue living at home. For a modest annual fee, Wellesley at Home provides its members with access to practical, reliable services and social support, while fostering a sense of community within the town. Based on the model begun several years ago by Beacon Hill Village, there are currently over fifty other organizations like Wellesley at Home across the United States that enable residents to “age in place” while enjoying independence, a personal safety net and many social activities and connections.
Of her appointment to the Board, Tarsy said: “I’m thrilled to be able to give back to the town of Wellesley by participating in an organization that has as its motto: ‘Happily remaining in the town you love.’ Not only does Wellesley at Home help reduce the stress on residents who want to remain in the homes they have loved for thirty or forty years, it also provides peace of mind to their children and loved ones who may no longer live close enough to help with basic needs and chores.” For more information, please go to: www.wellesleyathome.org.
