Even the most independent among us have times when:

  • We need help getting to medical appointments or shopping, due to illness, surgery or a sudden fall.
  • Family and friends who generally help with transportation and chores may not be available.
  • We need information on reliable vendors, such as plumbers, handymen, or home health companies.
  • We need help with new technology, from cell phones to DVRs to programmable thermostats!

Village membership is open to all Arlington County residents who are 55 or older. ANV offers many benefits to its members. Your ANV membership includes:

  • Free annual basic membership in Arlington County’s 55+ program
  • Free subscription to Washington Consumer CHECKBOOK
  • Discounted Emergency Response System through Virginia Hospital Center

Membership categories and fees vary depending upon the level of programs and services desired.

And consider giving the gift of ANV membership to a special friend or loved one. Perhaps you can’t help out as much as you would like to now.  An ANV membership gives you peace of mind in knowing that neighbors are watching out for someone you care about.
