Take the NYC Older Resident Survey

The survey will be available throughout the month of May, which has been designated as “Older Americans Month” by the City.

New York City’s Department for the Aging (NYC Aging) recently announced a new initiative to better understand and address the needs of its older population.

Referred to as the “Service Needs Assessment”, the citywide survey was established to pinpoint service gaps for senior residents (60 years and older), as well as enabling the city to “better advocate for their needs,” according to agency.

Among the crucial areas covered in the survey include finance management, transportation, meal preparation and social isolation.

“We created this survey to reach the vast number of diverse older adults who call New York City home. This will allow us to evaluate our programs and collaborate with our providers to meet their needs,” said NYC Aging Commissioner Lorraine Cortés-Vázquez. 

Throughout the month of May — which has been designated as “Older Americans Month” by the city — NYC Aging staff and various partners will be actively promoting the survey at events across the five boroughs.

The survey is available in 10 different languages and can be found on NYC Aging’s website. In addition, participants who opt to share their contact information will have the chance to win a $50 gift card in a drawing scheduled for October.
