New York Foundation for Senior Citizens is dedicated to helping New York's seniors enjoy healthier, safer, more productive and dignified lives in their own homes and communities and to help them avoid the need for premature institutionalization.
International Relations – A Model for Other Programs
The growing population of seniors has served as a catalyst for developing effective lifestyle programs that meet the needs of the elderly. As a pioneer in serving this population, NYFSC’s senior citizen housing and social service programs serve as models for similar programs worldwide. Representatives of like-minded programs throughout the United States and abroad – including Australia, Canada, China, England, Japan, the Netherlands, Germany and South Korea – have established relationships to share knowledge and “best practices” on programs for seniors.
