Aging in Place

The Aging in Place program supports the ability of older adults to remain independent and healthy in their homes and communities as long as possible.

We support the creation and expansion of high-quality programs, services and infrastructure that meet the needs of the growing population of older adults in Bergen and Passaic counties. In addition, the Foundation makes Aging in Place grants in Israel through existing partnerships. The foundation is not seeking new partnerships for funding in Israel.

Through our New Jersey grantmaking in this portfolio, we partner with organizations serving at-risk and vulnerable seniors with the goal of improving their well-being, including their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive health.

We also fund research to inform our grantmaking, in order to help launch innovative approaches and encourage implementation of models that have proven successful elsewhere.

We have recently launched a new initiative to support age-friendly communities.
