Our Mission

Longer life means that today's older adults have opportunities unknown to previous generations. Longer life also brings new challenges for both older adults and caregivers. No one understands the new face of aging better than the professionals at Lifespan.

Lifespan helps older adults and caregivers take on the challenges and opportunities of longer life.  As a regional nonprofit, Lifespan is a trusted source of unbiased information, guidance and more than 30 services and advocacy for older adults and caregivers. We also provide training and education for allied professionals and the community. Annually we assist thousands of older adults and caregivers. All of our services are provided in Monroe County and several extend to the Pennsylvania border and over to Seneca and Genesee counties.
