WHO WE ARE

Parkside Village is an organization of neighbors who live in Parkside Condominium.   We noticed that all of us occasionally need help with transportation and household tasks, and that we were happy to support each other when asked.   In addition, many of us felt a need for more opportunities to interact and get to know each other better.

The cooperative neighbors helping neighbors “village” model seemed a good way to fill those needs, and we established Parkside Village as a Maryland nonprofit corporation.  Parkside Village members vary in age, cultural backgrounds, and interests, but we all are devoted to enhancing the quality of life in our Parkside neighborhood, with special attention to those aging in place.  We function as a community network that provides mutual support and helpful services as well as group and educational activities—all working together to strengthen the community.

WHAT WE DO

The Parkside Village motto is "Neighbors Helping Neighbors", and that's what we do.

Sometimes people need a little help to get routine things done.   For example, our older neighbors may be cautious about climbing a stepladder to change a light bulb, and anyone may need to be driven someplace from time to time.  

Personal Services

We offer our members personal services provided by trained, vetted and insured volunteers from within our community.   Services evolve depending on need and volunteer capability, but they include such things as:

  • Transportation to doctor visits, shopping, etc.
  • Occasional light chores and errands
  • Phone calls and scheduled "check-in" visits
  • Help with grocery shopping and meal prep
  • Simple tech help
  • Others services as needs arise

Activities

We provide a host of services that encourage connections among our members, including such things as:

  • Meet-your-neighbor potluck dinners
  • Informative talks at Village gatherings
  • Group outings to local events and places
  • Workshops and demonstrations to learn new skills
  • Discussion groups
  • Information about local resources
  • Other event themes or topics suggested by members
