Hi Peter and Linda -

Awesome service you offer.  Your blog would be a great Localism too.  Albuquerque has a growing number of 55+ living areas that are fabulous. 

Best regards from the Q

HI Donna,

It might be something for you and a few others to looki into in your own community, before you know it you will have a great support network that will benefit seniors and those that care for them.

Peter and Linda this is a GREAT service!  We are really lacking in communities for the aging population here!  

Posted by Sherri Berry, Murfreesboro TN Homes & Real Estate (Reliant Realty, Murfreesboro) about 9 years ago

HI Sherri,

thank you for your feedback, it is interesting to note that EFCN, was created by a few active individuals, who themselves had been searching for a better intergration and dialogue between the various resources available within our community.

What they found was that there was much available than presumed, and just by getting together, many services and resources have become much better known and available to those that may be in need for them.

We do not know your community, but I would be tempted to say that you might be pleasantly surpirised, and find many relatively unknown resources in your community. Which may make for an excellent opportunity to bring together these organnizations in a network for the benefit of your community and your community profile.
