NY-ALCA condemns discrimination and violence against Black People
The New York Aging Life Care Association condemns all discrimination and violence against Black People and recognizes the painful legacy of racial inequality that has persisted since the founding of our nation. As a profession comprised of social workers, nurses, and gerontologists, and other helping professions, we stand with those in protest against the systemic racism Black people and other people of color face in our country. On a national level, we fully support the demands for action and change through legislation and distribution of funds to organizations that promote the uplifting of those who have been marginalized for too long in our society. As an organization, we recognize that our efforts to increase the diversity of our own membership and board need to be more robust, focused, and energized and we will work to make that happen.
Has caring for an older adult family member become challenging?
Have you noticed any troubling changes in your loved one? Are they having difficulty maintaining their homes or paying their bills in a timely manner? Do they appear to be losing weight, looking less put together or forgetting to attend appointments? Has caring for them disrupted your job performance or your ability to care for your children? If so, you can benefit from the services of an Aging Life Care® Expert also known as a Care Manager.
Aging Life Care Experts are professionals who can assess older adults and develop a care plan that will determine the need for in-home care, relocation and additional medical care. Aging Life Care Experts coordinate a variety of care related services and can be the eyes and ears for family members who live far away. They are also there for those family members who live nearby, but are too busy to handle the daily details of the older person’s life. Aging Life Care Experts provide the answers and the solutions to busy family members who know help is needed but don’t know what to do.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for older adults who reside in the city and state of New York.
