WISE & Healthy Aging’s mission is to enhance the independence, dignity and quality of life of older adults through leadership, advocacy and innovative series. An important leader in the field of aging for more than four decades, the agency is the result of a November 2007 merger of WISE Senior Services and Center for Healthy Aging. From the active older adult looking for meaningful volunteer opportunities to the frail homebound senior, WISE & Healthy Aging seeks to enhance quality of life of older adults who are at risk, have a physical or mental impairment, want to remain living in their own home, are lonely or depressed and/or are at risk for exploitation by others.
