Independence and Peace of Mind

Under SPRYE's umbrella of services, remaining independent as you age in a familiar community and neighborhood is a very real option.

Members have access to a network of pre-screened, reliable service providers. They are able to participate in regularly scheduled cultural, educational, and social activities. With over 100 members and growing, SPRYE plays a vital role in helping older adults keep connected to their community.

SPRYE joins a nationwide aging in place (AIP) movement. More than 140 groups are already operating and 120 more are in formation.

The Sandwich Generation: Caring for Aging Parents while Raising your own Children

An unprecedented number of adults are finding themselves part of the sandwich generation — taking care of aging or ill parents whilst also parenting their own children – leaving them feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, guilty, angry, and being pulled in multiple directions. Dr Haymon’s talk will help you:

 Get off the emotional roller coaster! Get your life back! Never feel guilty again!

Dr. Sandra Haymon is a licensed psychologist, author and international speaker with over twenty years experience in the field of caregiving.  Her latest book Baby Boomers – Sandwiched Between Retirement and Caregiving is the most comprehensive book on caregiving.  She has appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America-Sunday.

 

New York State Senator George Latimer is introducing a bill in the Senate that will create a Task Force to study and recommend policies on aging-related services and policies inclusive of transportation, nutrition, infrastructure, zoning changes to facilitate home care, tax incentives, private insurance, increased elder abuse and fraud protection, and improved medical care, among others that the task force may choose.  Please read the attached information summarizing the bill and show your support by signing the petition.  Click here for pdf of bill summary. Click here for petition.

SPRYE is proud to be a member of
Village to Village Network, a national
organization that supports and connects
aging in place groups across the country.
