I.R.E.N.E. was founded in 2015, by a small group of women who shared a common interest of making a difference in the lives of seniors residing in urban communities. These women came together often to organize and facilitate intergenerational activity groups and provide friendly visits to seniors residing in nursing homes. In addition to supporting families, caregivers and natural supports who are involved in their elderly loved one’s care.
I.R.E.N.E. is a multifaceted program that aims to provide services that will enrich the lives of seniors and their families/caregivers. I.R.E.N.E. offers a multitude of resources that will support seniors by serving, empowering, educating, advocating, and collaborating with various sectors in efforts to meet the needs of this under-served population.
Every senior has access to services within the community and every senior who reaches out to I.R.E.N.E. receives the best care possible.
