Deputy Commissioner of the NYC Department for the Aging to Speak about "Age Friendly NYC"

New York

Please join the New York City chapter of Aging2.0 at 6pm on Wednesday, October 18, to hear Caryn Resnick, Deputy Commissioner of External Affairs at the NYC Department for the Aging, speak about "Age Friendly NYC."

She will discuss how New York City, under Mayor de Blasio, has increased funding for senior centers, case management services, home-delivered meals, Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs), elder abuse programs, transportation services, and more.

These critically important investments will help older residents live healthier and more fulfilling lives as they age in the city they love, continuing to make New York a better place to grow up and grow old. By 2040, one in every five New Yorkers will be 60 or older. 

Age-friendly NYC was launched in the fall of 2007 as a collaboration between the Mayor’s Office, the New York City Council (Council), and the New York Academy of Medicine (Academy). Age-friendly NYC has made great strides toward assessing the City’s responsiveness to the needs of older New Yorkers, developed recommendations, and implemented strategies that allow New York to enhance its status as an age-friendly city.

Age-friendly NYC builds on the work of the World Health Organization’s Global Age-friendly Cities initiative, which engages older adults and other stakeholders in cities around the world to identify the core features of an age-friendly city. 

Special thanks to Atria for hosting this event and for providing food and drinks!!!!
