AGE AT HOME

Seniors usually prefer to stay at home rather than in a hospital, nursing home, or care facility. We’ve helped:

  • Improve the City’s paratransit program.
  • Train home-care workers to better assist aging clients.

A senior center in Queens welcomes aging LGBT New Yorkers. Our funding helps the center provide them with health, recreational, and other services.
IMPROVE SENIOR CENTERS

Growing old can be lonely. Our grants help the City’s senior centers meet the needs of diverse older adults. We’ve helped:

  • Bring health services, art classes, and leadership opportunities to senior centers in low-income neighborhoods.
  • Strengthen centers that support aging LGBTQ and South Asian communities, and retired artists.
