Eldercare Home Launches in Chapel Hill

A Chapel Hill neighborhood is welcoming Orange County's first eldercare home. There's a special ceremony today to mark the opening. Paul Klever is executive director of Charles House Association, the non-profit sponsoring the home. Klever says residents of the Heritage Hills neighborhood actually approached them when they first heard about the idea:

"...and said we think this could be a very good fit for the kind of neighborhood we want to be.. and that neighborhoods can play a role and engender new models of care and continue to be a part of the lives of older people and to have them continue to be a part of the neighborhood."

The public is invited to attend a ribbon cutting and community open house this afternoon.
