As Program Director of Next Phase Adult Caregiving and Retirement, Dr. Stacey Gordon’s work focuses on three related areas: caregiving, aging, and retirement.
Stacey provides private caregiving consultations to faculty and administrators, University-wide programs on family caregiving, and a support group for those experiencing caregiving challenges and bereavement, especially during COVID-19.
Stacey also directs the NYU Society of Retired Faculty. She also offers private consultations to faculty and administrators considering retirement and workshops for faculty on anticipating and envisioning retirement.
To support faculty of all ages, Stacey initiated The Wrinkle Project @NYU Work Life, based on her own community initiative, The Wrinkle Project. The Wrinkle Project @NYU is focused on changing language and communication around age as a way to decrease ageism and positively affect attitudes towards aging in both younger and older community members at NYU.
Prior to joining the Work Life team, Stacey was a social entrepreneur and founded several organizations including ElderOptions Care Management in New York and Chicago. In 2012, she founded the first large-scale geriatric care management organization in Israel.
Stacey served as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Chicago School Service Administration and is currently teaching in the Post-Master’s Family Therapy Certificate Program at the NYU Silver School of Social Work.
