Palos Verdes homes owners have a wonderful organization to help care for its aging population. The City of Palos Verdes Estates’ Senior Program; PVE-CARES, was established in 2004, by the Palos Verdes Estates Police Department, to address the rise in crimes against seniors. It was found that seniors were becoming the victims of what is commonly referred to as “Elder Abuse,” so they helped design a program called PVE-CARES (PVE-Care, Assistance, Resources, Education, and Socials). PVE-CARES was designed to provide education, available resources and socialization for Palos Verdes Estates’ senior residents so that they may avoid becoming victims as well as be able to live independently, in their own homes, for as long as possible.
PVE-CARES holds between 5-6 events each year. They include a Spring Event, which usually holds a topic of interest, a May Social which generally is some sort of musical or theater production, a Summer Concert such as Chaussee’s Big Band, Doctor’s Talk and their big Senior Health & Wellness Fair held in October which has over 40 exhibitors, flu shots and more.
Palos Verdes Seniors can enjoy the monthly Senior Lecture Series which take place on Wednesay’s at Hesse Park starting at 10:30 a.m. Also available through this program are exercise and support groups, AARP Tax Aide programs, travel and movie opportunities.
