The New York State Office for the Aging designated the Westchester County Office for the Aging in 1974 as the area agency serving all persons 60 years of age and older. In 2001, the office became the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services (SPS).

Senior Programs and Services Files, 1988-2013
Series 401
4 cubic ft. Arranged alphabetically and chronologically.

This collection consists of the files of the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services. The bulk of the materials dates from 2002 to 2013. Materials include flyers, brochures, invitations, and printed programs; surveys; program monitoring assessments; menus and activity calendars; newsletters and press clippings; and departmental and personal correspondence. In sum, the collection serves to represent at least in part the life of senior citizens of Westchester County in the early 2000s.

The files contain records of departmental events such as Senior Law Day, Salute to Seniors, and the Hall of Fame; documentation of the monitoring of services concerning transportation, housing, Medicare rights, in-home care, and assisted living facilities; graphics orders for flyers, brochures, and other printed material for SPS events and services; and photographs. These include portraits made by County photographer John Vecchiolla of attendees at the Hall of Fame and three scrapbooks showing people participating in various events.

The collection is housed in nine boxes, of which Box 5 and Box 6 are restricted for 75 years due to the personal information contained therein.
