ABOUT LIFEFORCE IN LATER YEARS
Since 2009, Lifeforce in Later Years has delivered on its vision of maximizing the quality of life for the vast numbers of frail elderly who, in these times, live alone at home. It is nationally recognized for its models of volunteer-based community elder-care and mentors organizers across the land. LiLY’s awareness campaign, “Celebrate Our Elders Week,” is combatting ageism and making the “good neighbor policy” a reality. We actively seek partners to expand this program of culture change for the very old.

THE LEGACIES AWARDS GALA
The LiLY Legacies Awards Gala celebrates those individuals whose impact is felt across generations. Awardees have included Geoffrey Holder, David Amram, Dr. Herbert Pardes, Sandy Socolar, Dr. George Alexopoulos, Deborah McManus, and Arthur McGee. With career fields spanning the arts, medicine, and philanthropy, each honoree has brought Gala attendees together to enjoy lives of impact. In 2018, we proudly announce the inauguration of the Dr. Herbert Pardes Inspire Award.
