The Center for Aging in Place is a non-profit organization established in 2008 to promote the growing movement to Age in Place in Westchester County. Through the generous support of the Helen Andrus Benedict Foundation, the Center has facilitated the development and growth of ten Age in Place membership groups in Westchester County.
Aging in Place is a national movement to enable people to stay in their own homes as they grow older by making available the social support, health care, and home maintenance services they require to live happy, productive lives in the community.
Aging in Place (AIP) Membership Groups are grassroots, non-profit organizations created, funded and led by Westchester community residents to develop aging in place services and activities for adults 65+ in their own neighborhoods.
The Center for Aging in Place (CAP) provides assistance, support, and resources to these community-led groups seeking to establish aging in place membership programs in Westchester County. We are the ONLY organization dedicated to helping grassroots groups develop and sustain NEW aging in place membership programs to provide services decided upon and funded by members to meet the needs of older residents living in those communities.
“Being a member of The Center for Aging in Place has been invaluable to me as the coordinator of At Home in Scarsdale Village. I learn from all the other members who have already tried and tested ideas, programs, methods, and can share their results . . . I not only get great ideas directly, but feel connected to a team of volunteers and professionals who are all working toward similar goals. I feel so lucky that I can call upon other leaders of CAP. “
