Millions of elderly people living in New York, in Israel, and around the world have pressing needs. We give the elderly access to best-in-class services, including mental health services, affordable housing, home-delivered kosher meals, advocacy, and companionship so they can stay independent and active for as long as possible. As their needs increase, our skilled nursing facilities provide various residential options that still feel like home. And when the time comes, we offer end-of-life 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-19 Crisis: Our Response
Because of the pandemic, older adults who face a greater risk of illness have become homebound, unable to attend programs at JCCs and senior centers that provide meals and good friends to talk with. UJA’s partners on the ground have quickly pivoted to deliver meals to seniors safely at home. Mental health support, friendly phone calls, and virtual programming are helping alleviate the loneliness of isolation. We’re also helping mobilize volunteers who have been delivering food and facilitating online programs.
With many thanks to our generous donors and network of nonprofits for making all this possible.
