First Friday Lunch with Millbrook at Home

Friday, December 6 (12 – 2PM) 

Maura’s Kitchen of Millbrook

18 Alden Pl, Millbrook, NY 12545

Come join Millbrook at Home for our First Friday Lunch where Paula Redmond of Paula Redmond Real Estate will be speaking about preparing your home for sale. Join us at Noon on December 6th in Mauras Kitchen of Millbrook, 18 Alden Pl, Millbrook, NY 12545.

We look forward to seeing you at this event which will be a wonderful opportunity to network and connect with seniors in the area, as well as to gain some information on how to best prepare your home for sale if you are planning on downsizing. The sale of a home can seem overwhelming, especially after many years creating memories, so join us to find out how to make this process easier on you and your family as you transition. 

As always, there will be a preset price fixed menu with some of the specialties that come out of Maura’s Kitchen. Seniors from Millbrook and surrounding towns in Washington are encouraged to join us for this event. Bring a friend, have a meal, and learn something new with Millbrook at Home.

Home Care Needs For Senior Citizens: Hosted by NY Caring Majority & Millbrook at Home

Wednesday, December 11th (1:00-3:00pm)

Parish Hall of Grace Episcopal Church

3328 Franklin Avenue, Millbrook, NY

Millbrook at Home’s mission is to help seniors stay safe, happy and comfortable in their homes as they age.  Sometimes that means that additional help is needed to care for ourselves and/or our loved ones. At the same time, the number of care workers may not be adequate for the demand as the population gets older. 

The New York Caring Majority seeks to build a sustainable and just care infrastructure that makes it possible for seniors and their families to access and afford home care while also supporting the caregivers whose work allows seniors and people with disabilities to live healthy and independent lives.

Please join us as we learn more about this organization’s efforts and the growing need for care workers, the status of care workers in the workforce, and efforts to make this situation beneficial for all.  On Wednesday, December 11, the New York Caring Majority will show a short film highlighting the lives of several senior citizens and their caregivers as they work and care for each other. Discussion will follow with a panel of local experts.

This presentation and discussion will be held in the Parish Hall of Grace Episcopal Church, 3328 Franklin Avenue, Millbrook, NY.  Please contact connect@millbrookathome.org if you have questions.


Coffee & Connections with Millbrook at Home

St Joseph’s Church

Holiday Party with Millbrook at Home

Join Millbrook at Home and help us celebrate the upcoming holiday season with a little bit of music and fun.  Len Nelson, singer and guitarist, will entertain us with his own brand of music and perhaps a few holiday songs as well.  Len has played locally, on Riverboat Tours, at the Landings and has recorded on the Clearwater Album with Pete Seger. Hearing his music will certainly be a treat.

Join us and other friends to listen and, maybe, sing along with Len Nelson on Wednesday, December 18 beginning at 1 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Church Parish Hall located at 15 North Ave, Millbrook, NY 12545. We will be having a potluck style buffet of treats, so we ask you to bring one (or more) of your favorite finger foods to share. 

Millbrook at Home is excited for this holiday party and to ring in the end of the year with you before the holiday season hits full swing. This is a perfect opportunity to speak to board members about upcoming events and plans for Millbrook at Home, and to also share any feedback you may have about programs or content you would like to see. We hope to be able to bring you more fun events like this in the near future.
