This program is administered by the Eddy Visiting Nurse Association in partnership with the Mechanicville Housing Authority and the Mechanicville Community Center. The seniors served by this NORC reside in one of two housing complexes in Mechanicville, New York.
The program is designed to enable frail older adults residing in such housing complexes to maintain their independence, improve their quality of life and avoid unnecessary hospital and nursing-home stays. Support services include service coordination, healthcare management, monthly meals, health/wellness programming, opportunities for socialization and recreation, PERS(personal emergency response system), transportation to medical appointments, etc.
This program is funded by a grant from New York State Office for the Aging.
