Who We Are

If you are a New Yorker, 60 and over, important areas of your life could well be enhanced by options offered through the Department for the Aging. There are choices that help toward more independence and challenges for greater productivity. For example, you may be eligible for exemption from a rent increase; you may need a home-delivered meal or home care services; or you may seek employment that is rewarding. Or maybe you just need solid answers to some vital questions from a reliable source. The Department for the Aging contracts with more than 400 local agencies to provide a wide array of services throughout the five boroughs. Services are designed to reflect the rich cultural and ethnic diversity of New York City's local neighborhoods. The Department is the place to turn for questions about benefits and services, assistance with government program applications, and for special services to help older New Yorkers and their caregivers.
