At LiveOn NY, our mission is to champion the rights of older New Yorkers. We began as a City organization dedicated to advocating for policy change to further the interests of senior centers and agencies. Today, we are also an incubator, shaping the future of aging by developing new ideas that take the form of advocacy, policy and program development. And now, we directly serve older New Yorkers, standing beside them as they face daily challenges.
Services we offer members
Policy & Advocacy Work
We help shape the policy agenda for older adults in New York. We advocate for more support for aging New Yorkers in the city and state budgets, against elder abuse, for affordable housing, to help elder immigrants, and for rights and support to caregivers. We develop the needed research that supports the creation of better programs and policies. click here to learn more

Outreach & Assistance for Older New Yorkers
Direct Services Programs
LiveOn NY believes that older New Yorkers should get all of the benefits that they are entitled to, should be free from fraud and abuse when seeking medical care, and should be engaged in the advocacy process.
Our direct services programs have an immediate impact on older adults. Our Benefits Outreach Program helps seniors navigate the world of public benefits. Learn what federal, state, and local benefits you may qualify for with a free and confidential screening. We offer screening and application assistance for SNAP, SCRIE, Medicaid, Medicare Savings Program, and other benefits.
LiveOn NY is also the Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) in New York State. SMP is a volunteer based program that focuses on educating and empowering seniors to take a more active role in their healthcare by spreading knowledge about how to protect against healthcare fraud.
