“THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT WE CAN OFFER OTHERS IS OUR PRESENCE.” -THICH NHAT HANH
Wisdom Care was founded by Karina Koloch and Paula Winograd in 2015. In our first 10 months we have served over 300 older adult women in New York City with Alzheimer’s and related neurocognitive conditions as well as other physical and emotional challenges of old age. Our work is rooted in a heart-centered approach to aging in women, where care is focused on emotional, social, mental and spiritual well-being, and is explored through all the living senses. We are currently in the process of seeking 501(c)3 status.
Our intention is to hold a nurturing, supportive and transformative space together with elders, to celebrate and honor their strong inner wisdom, intuition and courage. In situations where most independence is taken away by disease or living conditions, we work to open up internal space where we can dwell in those places where independence is still available, from which personal and community growth can be explored, and compassion, kindness and self-esteem cultivated.
We offer five types of heart-centered sessions. Every session is prepared and customized according to the needs of participants and facilities, and based on our evaluation of previous sessions.
