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.
Through our Home Repair program, senior owners of private homes, condos and co-ops, with limited finances, are benefiting from free home maintenance and repair services. Services include minor plumbing, gutter- cleaning, masonry, electrical, carpentry, caulking, weather- stripping, home readiness for winter and summer, and the installation of crime prevention devices, as well as some emergency services. Each year this highly successful program serves thousands of older homeowners and renters in all five boroughs. It is made possible through funding from the New York City Department for the Aging, and from private contributions. Contact us to learn more: email@example.com or 212-962-7559 ... See MoreSee Less
Our Respite Care Program provides temporary relief for primary caregivers of the frail elderly. Foundation social workers visit seniors and their caregivers to determine the need for short-term in-home care. Once an individual’s needs are ascertained, a trained and certified Home Attendant is carefully screened and selected to help. At any given time, New York Foundation for Senior Citizens coordinates respite care services for hundreds of seniors and their caregivers.
