Older adults value living in their homes in familiar and comfortable settings. However, this living situation, known as aging in place, sometimes limits connections to the local neighborhood and broader community. To keep seniors connected and promote well-being, JSSA, together with local community organizations, offers a variety of socialization programs for seniors that include:
Coming of Age (COA) in MD
Montgomery County residents age 60+ meet several times each month for social and educational events. Participating in COA events is an easy way to form wonderful ongoing relationships.
The Himmelfarb Mobile University (HMU)
HMU provides stimulating learning opportunities and classes to residents of retirement and assisted living facilities and nursing homes, and participants in senior activity programs.
