Commitment to advancing healthy aging:

Over the next year, we will continue to advertise our program and to offer our program free of charge, making it accessible to everyone who wishes to attend. The program’s desired outcomes are to decrease social isolation among seniors while keeping them active and healthy, nurture their intellects and creativity, and promote the well-being of an ever larger and more diverse cohort of older adults. We will continue to offer our program in an online format until it is safe to meet in person again, knowing that many seniors are feeling isolated these days. In addition to our courses, we are holding brown bag lunches with speakers from MA SHINE (Medicare), Jewish Family Services, BayPath Elder Services, and Council on Aging Directors from the MetroWest Boston area. We will continue to hold Brown bag lunches that highlight services and information helpful to people age 60+.
