The Life Enrichment Center Narrative

2017 Grant Impact – Oyster Bay Community Foundation Grant

Funding from the 2017 grant supported the Life Enrichment Center’s Social Services department enabling us to provide vital services to the areas aging population. The Social Services coordinator and a team of interns assist the most vulnerable older adults through needs assessment, finding resources for support and handling crisis situations.   The coordinator has touched the lives of many seniors and their families through one-on-one counseling, assistance with Medicare, Medicaid, and other entitlement applications, facilitating support groups, telephone reassurance, and home visits.   The services are available at no cost to seniors and their families, both members and non-members Monday thru Friday.
