Resource Discussion: The Gatekeeper Program
with Katherine Clarke, MSW of Family Services of Westchester

The Gatekeeper Program was designed to engage older adults, 55+ who live independently and may be at risk of mental health issues. 

The Gatekeeper Program goes out into the community to discuss how to recognize the signs, symptoms and "red flags" of older adults who may be at risk. The program seeks to reduce the isolation and decline that can accompany untreated mental health issues in older adults.

...but what does that actually mean, and how can we keep our goals?

Join us for a discussion on some healthy habits and nutrition tips that will keep you on track all year round!
