About Us

Visiting Neighbors, a non-profit organization, enables individuals age 60+ to remain independent and safe in their own homes and a vital part of the New York Community. Through programs of “neighbors helping neighbors,” volunteers, supported by Visiting Neighbors’ professional staff, help older adults alleviate loneliness and isolation, provide mental stimulation and emotional security, share information about wellness and health related concerns and encourage physical independence and quality of life at home.

Visiting Neighbors champions the power of the volunteer and encourages interdependence – so that mutual learning and understanding bring generations together to share life experiences and gain respect for each individual’s uniqueness. The organization promotes a positive acceptance of life after sixty and the value of the elderly in society.
