SENIOR FRIENDSHIP PROGRAM

Activities and services are developed based on input from the seniors served and those activities are as diverse as the seniors served.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Regular program activities include aerobics and exercise, bingo, movies, arts & crafts, music and computer, and activities that promote healthy lifestyles and preventive care. Health professionals, visiting nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, lawyers and other professionals visiting the program regularly to speak with the seniors about various issues of importance. They counsel as appropriate, answer any questions the seniors may have and generally serve as a resource for the seniors.

 

The center serves as a vital resource center providing an answer to almost any question or helping the seniors navigate the sometimes confusing network of services available to them. We also provide referrals for available community services to complement our on-site services. Referrals include legal assistance, rent assistance, safe driving classes, blood pressure checks, and home health assistance.

 

Lunch is served promptly at 1:00 PM. Field trips and celebrations with live music are planned throughout the year. Services are free although donations are requested to help cover the cost of operating the program.

 

             

The program operates Monday through Friday from 10am to 3pm
