THE BRONX - You may have heard of dating services like Tinder, JDate and Bumble, but there's one program at the Hebrew Home in Riverdale that is catering to seniors.

"G-Date," or "Grandparent Date," was started about a year and a half ago by Hebrew Home staff members.

Men and women can apply for the program, share their likes, dislikes and what they're looking for, and then get matched for a first date.

Whether it's a companion, lover or something more permanent, the program has those looking for love in their elder years covered.
