Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging improves the lives of older adults through research, policy and professional development.
From the Center’s location in East Harlem, staff are engaged in developing, implementing and evaluating cutting-edge programs and practices and disseminating those that work – such as daily money management services that protect elderly and disabled adults from financial exploitation and may enable them to remain at home instead of being placed in residential care facilities, and programs that neighborhood senior centers can offer to help people manage chronic health problems and improve their quality of life.
Brookdale is also a place where human services professionals, lawyers and other advocates come to expand their knowledge and sharpen their skills. Brookdale trains the majority of public employees in New York State who provide protective services to vulnerable adults; operates an institute specifically for managers and aspiring supervisors; trains lawyers and others in the guardianship process; and runs a rigorous certificate program in geriatric care management. Through these activities and others, Brookdale strengthens the systems, organizations and individuals that serve older adults, leading to tangible gains in health, safety and quality of life.
Brookdale could be a resource for you and your organization. We invite you to learn more about our work on this and to contact us.
