From stress-reducing yoga, to better understanding the path of the wanderer, to the Carter Burden dancers, to cake and goodies from Bartlett Dairy and our other vendors, we were thrilled to share our 29th Annual Conference with an estimated 400 professionals in the field!
At LiveOn NY, we work hard to make sure that the public hears about the issues affecting older New Yorkers, as well as the incredible momentum that exists as we grow old. To this aim, we are proud of each and every time we are able to share this narrative with our local communities or to comment on a topic effecting older New Yorkers.
In New York City, 50% of the older adult population are immigrants, and we oppose any Rule that would deny or deter access to public benefits based on immigration status to those in need of these supports. Further, 89% of adults over age 50 say they wish to age in place as long as possible, and the availability of these benefits, coupled with community based services are critical to supporting older New Yorkers to remain healthy and independent in their communities.
LiveOn NY is proud to join a diverse Coalition of advocates to call for reforms to strengthen New York’s rent regulation laws, set to expire this June.
