NY Connects



    NY Connects is a trusted place that gives information and counseling to people of all ages who need long term services and supports to help them maintain or improve their daily functioning and health. This could be an older adult, a child with a disability, a family member or caregiver, a friend or neighbor, or even a helping professional. 

  NY Connects is a resource that links the community to services of their choice in order to remain independent as long as possible regardless of insurance. NY Connects gives information about home care, respite care, home delivered meals, transportation, caregiver supports, health insurance information, care coordination or case management, and more. Information and assistance is provided by telephone, presentations, Dispatch articles, the Delaware County NY Connects Website, and by appointment. NY Connects partners with key area resources and services through the Long Term Care Advisory Council and collaborative projects to improve communication and cooperation among service providers and caregivers. Since 2006, Delaware County NY Connects and the Long Term Care Advisory Council have looked at gaps in services and the challenges we face in Delaware County.
