Thanking our Stars!

Surprise! The party is at your house as we honor the stars of Riverstone…our staff!  Gather your family around in your finest formalwear (or pajamas) and pop the bubbly.  Join us online as we connect and share stories and love, while we raise vital funds to support NYC seniors.  For 35 years we have served a growing number of older adults – making sure that 1000s have a nutritious meal, their medication, and helping to reduce isolation so they can live in their homes and in their communities, with the highest quality of life for as long as they choose. With your help, we can reduce the tremendous impact that COVID-19 has had on Riverstone Senior Life Services and bolster our decades-long mission to change the lives of seniors and their families.
