The New York State Office on Aging recognizes the importance of seniors aging in the comfort of their own community and funds a variety of supportive services in an area referred to as the Albany NNORC.
What is a NNORC?
It’s a Neighborhood Naturally Occurring Retirement Community that has been identified as having a high number of seniors ages 60 and older. As such, an array of supportive services are available to residents in this area.
Where is the Albany NNORC:
What services are provided?
Services include social work support (case management, home visits, and counseling); healthcare-related assistance (safety assessments and health screenings), wellness and educational programs (yoga, blood pressure awareness and fall prevention) and community engagement events (movies, day trips, cultural outings, and cooking classes). There is also a dedicated handyman available for hire to do home projects.
Are there fees associated with these services?
