Village Movement to be featured this Sunday (October 19) on CBS Sunday Morning


Hello Village Friends,

Back in the Spring we made an announcement that the Village Movement would be highlighted on CBS Sunday Morning.  We have been patiently waiting for the segment to air and that time has finally come, it will air THIS SUNDAY!  Please share this information with your Village members.  We also recommend reaching out to your local CBS affiliates and offer to provide them more information on your Village and possibly even a follow-up story. See the full episode description below.

As we all know, an aging population, fewer family caregivers, increasingly limited personal financial resources, and growing strains on government and family budgets will create an unsustainable demand for long-term care.  Furthermore, policy makers have failed to reach consensus on how to finance and deliver long-term services and supports.  On this weekend’s CBS Sunday Morning, (check your local TV listings), senior news correspondent Rita Braver reports on the challenging picture of caring for older adults through interviews with a woman caring for her aging step father, former Senator Tom Daschle who leads the new Bipartisan Policy Center’s Long-Term Care Initiative, and New Yorker Magazine cartoonist and author Roz Chast (“Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant” – a memoir about caring for her aging parents).   It then highlights Beacon Hill Village and the Village model as a solution to the crisis.

If you are unable to catch the show live on Sunday, it will be available on, as well as

Thank you,
Village to Village Network
