About our model
Palisades Village is a Washington, D.C. community focused on enabling older adults to remain in their homes, living independently, comfortably, and safely as long as possible.
We are aligned with the national “Aging in Community” movement, which aims to help older adults and Baby Boomers continue to reside at home without burdening their family members with caretaking responsibilities as they age.
We help our residents thrive in their community by providing access to a network of volunteers who help with requests, and hosting social events and gatherings.
Our organization was founded in 2007, and has continued to grow each year. Learn more about our history.

Palisades Village is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit, charitable organization.
Welcome to Palisades Village, a non-profit organization helping older adults live at home and remain engaged in their communities.
The Palisades Village community was created to make the idea of ‘aging in place’ a little more practical for senior residents living in the Washington D.C. area.
We understand that if given the choice, most people would prefer to age in their own homes. Yet, as time goes by, there are many challenges of everyday life that begin to add up – in any combination of time, effort and money.
Our main purpose is to help support our older friends and neighbors while also providing peace of mind for their families. We accomplish this in a few different ways.
We provide Palisades Village Members with access to household and support services.
Some of the services provided by Palisades Village volunteers include transportation to medical appointments, help with shopping, pharmacy pickups, household and yard chores, and friendly visits at home. Through our office, we provide references for “vetted vendors,” such as electricians, plumbers and carpenters. Learn more about our service options here.
We host and help organize social events, lecture series, and other events that enable neighbors in our community to make friends.
We understand the importance of helping seniors stay engaged socially by offering many opportunities to get together with friends and neighbors. These events might include dinners, lecture series, sightseeing trips, and more. Visit our calendar to learn about our upcoming events.
We host events to raise funds for our organization and spotlight our community.
Palisades Village organizes public events, including an annual House Tour, which invites all visitors and residents of the District of Columbia to learn about the history and architecture of notable homes around the Palisades area. These events raise money for our organization, bring neighbors together, and help us to showcase our unique neighborhood.
