Seniors are involved in the active life of The Shorefront YM-YWHA community. Whether they are participating in excursions, clubs and cultural events, seeking social services or coming to The Shorefront YM-YWHA for a hearty nutritious meal and exercise class, seniors find themselves very busy here.
We have developed a full on-site Senior Social Services program to enhance the physical and mental well being of seniors while educating their families about gerontology and aging related issues in the United States.
Seniors are offered mental health assessments and counseling as well as support groups to address depression.
Fact sheets and seminars inform seniors and their families about end of life issues such as acute illness, transition assistance from hospital to home and nursing home information. We inform interested families about Jewish traditions regarding burial and mourning.
The JASA Shorefront Senior Center provides programming for senior adults over the age of 60 from all around the New York area. Seniors come together for recreation exercise and meals.
Seniors are involved in generating ideas for our programs and organizing many of the groups and activities at our center.
Membership and participation in any of our programs is free of charge.
