Wellness Together aims to improve quality of life for older adults who are homebound for health reasons or because they’re caregivers. We coordinate home visits and make creative use of technologies people often take for granted: cable TVs and telephone. With partners, we bring various practical and fun engagements into our neighbors’ homes, ranging from music concerts, to legal services (including around end-of-life issues), to healthcare coordination, and home modifications to make apartments safer for older people aging in place.
Besides making sure basic needs are met, we aim to support everyone’s desire to live their lives to their fullest potential.
In-person services, conducted carefully to ensure safety for all, are available for our neighbors on the Lower East Side and in Chinatown. All of our services are free of charge, in English, Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese. We also welcome anyone 60+ years old to join our program via telephone – from anywhere!
