Supporting the wellbeing of families and caregivers.

The Blavatnik Family Foundation Wellness Center is home to over 25 weekly wellness programs and activities. Programming for caregivers ranges from self-care workshops to mitigate stress and tension to personal training sessions tailored to caregivers’ unique needs and fitness goals. Thanks to the incredible generosity of our talented and dynamic wellness volunteers and donors, caregivers are able to practice yoga or simply get their hair cut and styled without having to be far from their loved ones. 

The center offers a serene, peaceful space to have a cup of tea or coffee, a fresh smoothie or healthy snack, read in the sunshine, or simply take a rare moment to one’s self. In the spirit of meeting the needs of our diverse House population, programs such as seasonal and cultural cooking, knitting lessons, DIY craft projects, and guided walking tours of New York City are regularly scheduled throughout each month. 

Special events, such as Spa Night for Caregivers hosted by New York’s premiere Peninsula Spa and Nutrition Workshop Circles, allow caregivers to relax, be cared for, and learn how to optimize their own health and wellness while staying at the House.
