Help us redefine the future of aging.

Demographics are shifting. By 2035, there will be more than 78 million people older than 65 living in the United States, and the number of seniors will surpass the amount of children for the first time since the Census has been recorded.

An aging population mixed with an ever-changing health care system means the challenges facing senior care are unprecedented.

Hebrew SeniorLife is the largest nonprofit senior care provider in New England, and we are the only long-term chronic care teaching hospital in the United States. Through our Hinda and Arthur Marcus Institute for Aging Research, we are also researching how to transform the human experience of aging. But we can't do any of this work without you.

Help Fund Hebrew SeniorLife - A Top Boston Nonprofit

We rely on philanthropic support to help fund every aspect of our care for seniors.

From critical health care programs and geriatric education to everyday needs such as social and wellness activities, your gift allows us to provide seniors all the care they deserve.
