With the vision of being a trusted source on senior services, trusted expert on matters of aging, and trusted voice for seniors and caregivers, WISE & Healthy Aging's mission is to advance the dignity and quality of life of older adults through leadership, advocacy, and high-quality, innovative series.
A well-respected nonprofit, community-based social services organization, headquartered in Santa Monica, CA. Leader in the field of aging for almost four 50 years, the agency is proud to receive national designation as a "Great Place to Work" as well as recognition with Guidestar's Platinum-level seal of transparency.
We serve three groups of people -- the frail elderly, caregivers of older adults, and active older adults age 50 and older (Boomers). We have the sole distinction in Los Angeles of serving seniors in both the traditional, residential community and those who are residents in long-term care facilities.
With our main office in Santa Monica, we also have regional offices for our City & County of Los Angeles Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program and Elder Abuse Prevention Program in Van Nuys, Pasadena, Montebello and Long Beach. For our Club WISE Program, we have centers in Santa Monica and Baldwin Hills. Programming focuses on keeping older adults age 50 and older active and healthy, with lifelong learning and volunteer engagement opportunities. Volunteer Club WISE instructors teach courses on fitness, health, technology, arts and humanities. Our Intergenerational Tutoring Program has volunteers paired with students in elementary schools in Central L.A. and also in the San Fernando Valley.
