Caring for People in Need

CARING FOR OLDER ADULTS

We help older adults lead vital lives and stay independent and active as long as possible.
Millions of older adults living in New York, in Israel, and around the world have pressing needs. We give seniors access to best-in-class care, including mental health services, affordable housing, home-delivered kosher meals, advocacy, and companionship.
As their needs increase, our skilled nursing facilities provide various residential options that still feel like home. And when older adults approach the end of their lives, we offer pastoral and hospice care and bereavement services. We’re also deeply committed to meeting the needs of Holocaust survivors whose early trauma exacerbates the challenges of old age.
We made a promise to never abandon and never forget. And we will always honor that promise. 

COVID RECOVERY: OUR RESPONSE

At the height of the pandemic, older adults were homebound, unable to attend JCCs and senior centers that served them meals. UJA’s partners quickly pivoted to deliver meals to seniors safely at home. Mental health support, friendly phone calls, and virtual programming helped alleviate the loneliness. And when vaccines became available, we helped seniors access hard-to-come-by appointments. After more than a year of lost time, seniors are now getting their lives back.
