Deepdale CARES NORC Supportive Service Program offers social work and nursing services, educational and recreational services to all individuals 60 and over living in the Deepdale Gardens Cooperative. NORC Supportive Service Programs are designed to serve communities where a majority of residents have "aged in place." The program's goal is to help elders remain safely in their own homes as long as possible.
Free services for Deepdale Gardens residents include:
Social Work services include case management, meeting with family members, assistance with entitlements, and information and referral services.
Nursing services provided by Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation, include blood pressure monitoring, patient advocacy, health and diet consultation.
Health education and fitness classes.
Socialization opportunities include discussion groups, cards, games, knitting and crocheting crafts, painting and art, movie parties and song sessions.
Day trips within New York City to museums, aquariums and other places of interest.
Round-trip transportation to the Deepdale CARES office for activities.
Limited transportation to medical appointments and low-cost transportation to local supermarkets.
NORC is short for Naturally Occurring Retirement Community, a comprehensive supportive service program for seniors. Typically, aging men and women need help getting quality care and support. NORCs help older community members by providing them with a wide range of such services, from nursing and social work home visits, to assistance in obtaining home repairs and maintenance. NORCs empower seniors to continue to live independent lifestyles in the comfort of their own home and community.
