At a board meeting last month, SPRYE officers approved an additional service for seniors. They formalized the role of the new Care Team, whose role is to help members who are temporarily confined to home or hospital. Depending on an individual’s situation, SPRYE volunteers will pay visits, deliver groceries and essentials, and regularly communicate with distant family members.

The local aging-in-place organization, serving Rye and neighboring communities, is always expanding its network of care.
