SAGE is Advocacy & Services for LGBT Elders.
Elderly people face the risk of social isolation. Unfortunately, LGBTQ + older adults face it even more! They are twice as likely to be single, and 3 to 4 times less likely to have children. They often do not have families who care for them. They are lonely, and if they are living with Alzheimer's disease, it is very scary to not have family caring for you.
We want to reach communities with LGBT older adults living with Alzheimer's disease.
Currently we plan to donate therapeutic Alzheimer's puzzles to SAGE Centers in NYC.
We need volunteers to deliver puzzles and participate in PUZZLE TIME for the following communities:
Edie Windsor SAGE Center
305 Seventh Avenue
New York, NY 10001
SAGE Center Harlem
220 West 143rd Street
New York, NY 10030
SAGE Center Bronx at Crotona Pride House
1784 Prospect Ave
Bronx, NY 10457
We are coordinating the logistics of PUZZLE TIME, and volunteers would need to show proof of vaccination and boosters, and wear masks at all times.
To deliver puzzles only masks are required.
We are delivering 400 puzzles to underserved SAGE communities on JUNE 4TH. Come join us!
Students will earn community service hours and we will have a few fun goodies in store!
Please email us at Kidcaregivers@gmail.com to volunteer!
