Sandy Dejesus, Case Manager
Our case manager assists seniors with obtaining restraining orders, accompanies them to court, and helps get them whatever additional assistance they need while working closely with the police, the Bronx District Attorney’s office, and Adult Protective Services.
The case manager is also part of a Multi-Discipline Task force which offers an array of supportive services to victims of crime.
In 2019 alone, case managers at our senior centers and naturally occurring retirement communities provided 5,195 units of case assistance to 2,028 older adults.
