Senior Services

CPC has senior centers in Manhattan and Queens. They provide solace, aid, and social activities to New York’s expanding population of elderly Chinese.

The centers’ nutritious, family-style meals constitute a popular reason to congregate in the dining rooms at noon. Meals-On-Wheels delivers meals to those who are homebound.

The Chinatown Senior Citizens’ Center in Manhattan boasts an orchestra room, where senior citizens perform for their peers. The Project Open Door Senior Citizens Center in Manhattan has hosted senior art shows, which integrate traditional Chinese art, western styles, and photography. The Nan Shan Senior Citizens Center is the hub of Queens’ Asian community and is now seeking to broaden to other localities. All of the centers strive to preserve and expand senior services and programs.

Seniors may benefit from multilingual services provided by the Brooklyn walk-in center and the Manhattan Multi-Social Services Center. The elderly can receive information and help on entitlement, food stamps and housing applications, and case assistance. They can also learn English, in addition to knowledge about health and nutrition. Recreational activities range from calligraphy, bingo, and tai chi, to dancing, news groups, and music performance.

CPC also operates one of the largest Home Attendant Programs that gives friendly home care services to seniors in the five boroughs, as well as to those who are medically disabled and/or physically handicapped. The program works with clients, their families, and physicians in tailoring each home care plan.
