The guide, created through a collaboration of the New York City Department for the Aging and the American Institute of Architects New York Design for Aging Committee, recommends residential building upgrades to accommodate older tenants and people with mobility/accessibility issues. By making these improvements, owners of private buildings can help residents remain in their homes as they age - safely, comfortably, and independently.
Intimate partner elder abuse affects the health and safety of many New Yorkers and their families.
Public awareness of the issue and a coordinated multidisciplinary response are required as the

The Department for the Aging (DFTA) publishes its Annual Plan Summary, a document that provides a valuable opportunity for DFTA to share its goals, objectives and program planning with the aging network. It also provides a schedule of public hearing dates where the public may give testimony.
