Morningside Retirement and Health Services (MRHS) serves elderly residents of Morningside Gardens, a 1,000 unit, multi-racial, middle income housing development in Morningside Heights/West Harlem, New York City. It consists of six high-rise buildings, and approximately 1,700 residents. More than 50% of units include a resident over the age of 60. Many of the older residents have lived in the Ga...rdens since it opened for occupancy in 1957 and have "aged in place". As a result, the complex has become known as a "NORC" -- Naturally Occurring Retirement Community -- with a large population of elderly people with special needs.
The Mission of MRHS is twofold: 1) to help frail and at-risk elderly residents of Morningside Gardens remain in their own homes comfortably, safely, and with as much independence as possible for as long as they can; and 2) to provide programs which promote health and provide opportunities for education, socialization and recreation for all older residents of Morningside Gardens, with particular attention to the special needs of the infirm, homebound, and isolated.
MRHS has a staff consisting of a director, two social workers and one social work intern, a nurse and two home health aides, an office manager, and many volunteers.
