SENIOR ADULT PROGRAM


 

clientuploads/Webpage Images/senior_programming.jpgResearch proves the lifelong importance of exercising body and mind. For senior adults, the JCC offers resources to keep you engaged. Drawing on decades of experience — and input from JCC members — activities are available that address the social, cultural and physical needs of people over age 65. At the facilities both in New Orleans and Metairie, you can join exercise classes, discussion groups, or game clubs. The program is rounded out with guest speakers, performances, and trips to local cultural centers. Simcha Luncheons, held once a month, celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, the accomplishments of grandchildren — and anything else worth celebrating! Most of all, you celebrate the joy of giving and growing in a supportive circle of friends.
