Making a positive difference in the lives of our Senior Residents by improving access to health, education, social and supportive services thereby helping them live with dignity and independence
Whether you are interested in socializing or getting fit, learning new things or staying healthy, the Brick Senior Outreach Center has something for everyone. Our programs are available for anyone over the age of 60. If you are interested in art and literature we offer painting, crafts and creative writing “Putting Pen to Paper” sessions. Those passionate about reading can participate in our monthly book club, “The Book Nook”. At our “Multicultural Explorations Club”, you learn about the different cultures and traditions around the world. For those that enjoy physical activities, then our fitness classes may fit your needs. We offer Zumba, light aerobics, Tai Chi and Yoga. Bring water and wear comfortable clothing as you work at your own pace. If you enjoy dancing or wish to learn to dance – ballroom dancing, free style dancing and line dancing are available with a dance instructor to guide you along.
While we offer the above activities, our Senior Outreach Program provides information and assistance on many important issues that our seniors face today – Medicare, RX coverage, Medical Transportation, Nutrition, Health Screenings and applying for various benefit programs are just some of the areas we can assist you with. At your request, we will conduct a one on one session with you to determine if you are eligible for government assistance programs and assist with the completion of these applications to help you obtain the help you need.
Referrals under the Caregiver Support Program can be provided to a family member or any unpaid individual who is caring for an elderly adult 60 years of age or older. This may be a spouse, parent, friend or neighbor. If you are helping with food shopping, transportation, preparing meals, housecleaning, managing medication or other tasks, then you are a Caregiver! Contact us for resources available that may assist you in caring for your loved one.
Senior Outreach Services offers Project Icebox as a way help older residents in the event of a medical emergency. All participants in the program will receive a magnetic holder that is placed on the refrigerator. Participants place emergency information including medical history, medications and contact info. In the event of an emergency, Brick Police, Brick EMS and other emergency personnel will be able to utilize the information in the event you cannot communicate with them. All participants will receive a window sticker that tells emergency responders that you are a Project Icebox household. The program is free.
