Across our country, we have what we call an aging network of services. When divisions of government, philanthropic agencies, hospital systems and faith-based groups work together, older adults can age successfully. Here in Cleveland, Eliza Bryant Village is part of our Age-Friendly Cleveland network.
“An Age-Friendly City is a place that enables people of all ages to actively participate in community activities. It is a place that treats everyone with respect, regardless of their age. It is a place that makes it easy to stay connected to those around you and those you love. It is a place that helps people stay healthy and active even at the oldest ages. And it is a place that helps those who can no longer look after themselves to live with dignity and enjoyment.”
The City of Cleveland Department of Aging interviewed Danny R. Williams, JD, MNO, LNHA, President & CEO of Eliza Bryant Village for an installment of the Age-Friendly Cleveland video series.
In the video, Mr. Williams talks about the mission of Eliza Bryant Village and the ongoing dedication of the organization to serving Cleveland’s vulnerable seniors for more than 122 years. He explains how to access our services along the continuum of care including affordable independent senior housing, a senior outreach and adult day care program with nutritious meals and safe, reliable transportation, our nursing facility with rehabilitation and a robust volunteer program that helps us stay connected with our community.
