Lenox Hill Neighborhood House

  • 29 people are interested

Lenox Hill Neighborhood House is a 127-year-old settlement house widely recognized as one of New York's premier human services providers. Founded in 1894 as a free kindergarten for immigrant children, the Neighborhood House now serves 16,000 in need each year through a wide array of effective and integrated services--social, educational, legal, health, housing, mental health, nutritional and fitness.

We are seeking Musicians/Singers for CARE, the Neighborhood House's award-winning arts-based program for older adults living with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Drawing on a person-centered approach, the CARE program offers high quality care and socialization services to individuals living with late-stage dementia and provides respite services to their caregivers and families.

Musicians and singers play a key role in facilitating client interaction and well-being through the arts. We are seeking performers to commit to one 30-45 minute live remote session per week, Wednesday at 1:00pm or Friday at 11:00am. Preference will be given to those who can sing in addition to playing piano or guitar.

If this position is of interest please contact Anthony Snowden, Volunteer Director at asnowden@lenoxhill.org or 212-218-0487.
