Dear Friends of Search and Care:
A March 2017 report released by the NYC’s Controller Office reported that the City’s older population had climbed an astounding 19.2% between 2005—2015. Yet, supports and services remain largely constrained throughout the city, often leaving seniors in a vulnerable position. Many wonder how they will be able to remain safely independent and still enjoy quality of life and peace of mind.
Keeping older men and women safe and independent, with dignity intact, has been Search and Care’s work for 45 years. While our social workers access benefits and entitlements, field financial navigators stabilize finances, nurses maintain health, occupational therapists prevent falling, homecare workers keep apartments tidy, medical escorts chaperone to vital appointments, telephonic monitors check-in regularly, therapeutic groups offer peer support and camaraderie, “Pets and Elders Together” nurtures special bonds, “Silver Circles” creates computer savvy seniors, and vetted volunteers escort, shop, and
With proper supports and services, older New Yorkers have shown themselves to be strong, despite life’s ups and downs. As Search and Care celebrates our 45th anniversary, we express our gratitude to you—new friends and old alike, who have generously supported our always fee-free programs and services over the years.
If you would like to make a new gift to our 2018 Annual Appeal Campaign, we would be deeply grateful. Simply click here.
With sincerest thanks,
