Through this UJA-Federation New York funded program for isolated seniors, a caring social worker will establish rapport, assess needs, make facilitated referrals, and follow up to confirm service provision, providing a warm connection to ongoing services tailored to each senior’s needs. We can connect seniors with:

  • Home delivered meals.

  • Paratransit transportation (in most areas).

  • Vaccine appointments.

  • Ongoing case management programs.

  • Home-based medical services.

  • Telephone or in-person counseling.

  • Home care.

  • Virtual programming.

  • Nassau County Police Department Senior Engagement Program

Accessing services is less overwhelming, when there is a caring professional providing support at each step of the way while the connection to ongoing services is made.

Through the generosity of UJA Federation, Isolation to Connection (ITC) Services are provided through local JCCs across Long Island. To contact the ITC Connection Specialist in your community, please see below:
