Caregiving


LGBT older people rely on families and friends for critical support in times of need. Running errands, picking up prescriptions, paying bills, cooking meals, or accompanying a friend to the doctor—this is just the kind of help we give to members of our community who are experiencing poor health or going through a rough patch. But sometimes providing this kind of caregiving for a friend or loved one can feel overwhelming.

Whether you are helping to take care of someone else or someone is helping to take care of you, if one of you lives in New York City, SAGE has a program and resources that can help, including:

  • Homecare respite
  • Social adult day respite
  • Supplemental funds for home modifications, Personal Emergency Response Systems, glasses, incontinence products, transportation expenses, and more
  • Caregiver support groups
  • Case management
  • Respite Buddies program
  • Short-term counseling
  • Referrals to and recommendations for safe and LGBT-affirming long-term care and home-based care services

To learn more, please contact us at 212-741-2247 and ask for the Care Manager on call.

SAGE's Caregiving Program is generously funded by the New York City Department for the Aging.
