Services for the Aging
The Department of Services for the Aging (DOSA) is dedicated to meeting the needs of North Hempstead’s aging residents who want to stay in their communities and in their own homes as they grow older. DOSA has as its core program, Project Independence (PI), the Town’s aging-in-place initiative. Almost one quarter of the Town’s 230,000 people are aged 60 or over. DOSA services include screening for chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes, health education seminars, support groups for caregivers and others, help accessing benefits, case management, social/recreational activities, volunteer opportunities and referrals to other sources of support. The department commissioner is Kimberly Corcoran-Galante.
