Older Adult Programs at the Riverdale Y include New Beginnings, our New York City Department for the Aging Funded Older Adult Center which offers lunch, educational and recreational activities and social services to adults age 60+.

Additionally, we provide case management to homebound participants through the Hudson Community Project: Safe at Home. And, mental health services are available at an on-site mental health clinic under the direction of JASA (Jewish Association for Services for the Aged). Older Adult residents of apartments in the Amalgamated and Park Reservoir Housing Corporation have access to case management, nursing, and recreational services as part of our government funded Naturally Occurring Retirement Community’s Services.

For more information on each of these services, click on the link on your left.

Door to door accessible transportation to and from The Riverdale Y is available.
