“VOICES 60+ has done a lot for me; you watched out for my health and inspired me to get up and go. I keep coming back to the program. If it wasn’t for 60+ I would not be who I am today.” -Winifred, 68

Our Mission

The mission of VOICES 60+ is to enhance the medical care experience of Hospital for Special Surgery’s older adult patients with arthritis and orthopedic disorders. We can achieve this by helping patients to navigate and access the care, community resources, support and education they need to meet the challenges they face.

Our Goal

Our goal is to empower our patients to make choices that will improve the quality of their life. Our program is devoted to meeting your needs.

For example, we can help with:

  • Talking with your doctor
  • Understanding your illness and treatment
  • Age-related concerns
  • Community resources and support
  • Understanding your benefits

VOICES 60+ in the Community

As part of HSS’s Community Service Plan, VOICES 60+ partners with older adult community service providers to enhance patient-doctor communication, and to increase patient safety and support at home by providing language and culturally appropriate services. 

Our Staff/Volunteers

To carry out our mission, our dedicated staff consists of a social work manager, social worker, program associates and trained volunteers.
