Brandywine Village Network

Plan Well. Live Well. Age Well.

BVN provides a neighborhood of support for older adults who live just where they want – at home.

Brandywine Village Network (BVN) is Delaware’s first Village, helping adults 50+ live independently in their own homes in northeastern New Castle County.

Through a variety of professional and volunteer services, BVN makes it possible for older adults to plan well, live well, and age well!

I stood in the doorway of my house and said, ‘This is where I raised my children and had my business. This is where I am going to stay.’ And because of BVN, I can.

Brandywine Village Network Makes this Possible Through:

PrintVolunteer Assistance

Reliable and trusted volunteers help with transportation, grocery shopping, bill-paying, yard work, and light household repairs and cleaning.
