About Y-Move

Y-Move is an  initiative of Mandorla, Inc. a 501 (c) 3 based in Lacey Township, New Jersey.
 The Y-Move program was developed through a partnership with SCORE and its goals and objectives are aligned with the 8 domains of livability for aging-in-place, established by both the AARP and the World Health Organization.

As senior citizens age and need more services, connecting with available resources becomes more important and a greater challenge.  Y-Move outreaches to seniors seeking help on where, how and whom to turn to for the needed information.

We also utilize a Facebook Group to facilitate communication with Lacey seniors who may be isolated due to mobility, health issues or loss of significant support from a spouse, family member or friend.

We think the power to share these common experiences of aging-in-place in a Facebook Group has the potential to greatly enhance the quality of life for age-in-place seniors.
