COVID-19 Senior Response Fund

If you are wondering how you can help during this health care crisis that is putting our most vulnerable at risk, please consider a gift today to HSL’s COVID-19 Senior Response Fund. During this uncertain time, our need for funds to help us through this crisis is growing. Some of the urgent things the fund will help us with include extra staff to conduct screenings, do food delivery, do more frequent sanitizing, replace quarantined colleagues, and staff a dedicated COVID-19 isolation unit. We also need to purchase needed personal protective equipment for our staff, and we are continuing to expand technology to help our patients and residents ward off social isolation. Please consider a gift today. Together, we will get through this! Thank you.

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 not-for-profit 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 Redefine Aging Without You

We rely on philanthropic support to help fund every aspect of our not-for-profit organization. We place special emphasis on caring for the most underserved seniors in our community, including those suffering from dementia or elder abuse, and low-income 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.

When you donate to Hebrew SeniorLife, you’re not just supporting today’s seniors. You’re helping future generations of seniors live healthier, more fulfilling lives — thanks to the advances in research and care you’re helping to fund.
