Senior adults have the right to have a voice in determining matters in which they have a vital interest. Multipurpose Senior Centers were established to provide nutritional, health and human services to seniors in their communities. The programs, projects, and activities are designed to help meet individual, family and community needs as well as contribute to the welfare of Senior Center clients. The Mahwah Senior Activity Center is the focal point of services for seniors in this town. The Center provides services for individuals age 62 and over and their caregivers. The Center's programs allow more clients to age in place and prevent early entry into assisted living or nursing home placement. Additionally, the emphasis on physical activity and education helps minimize the cost of medical care or hospitalization. The Senior Activity Center seeks to foster independence and continued growth in older adults with heavy emphasis on physical fitness. Classroom instruction is designed to enhance and expand our seniors' leisure time pursuits by introducing them to different hobbies and activities. We offer educational programs and guest speakers to enhance our seniors' knowledge of current programs and legislation that affects them. From computers to current events, older adults are constantly challenged and stimulated by the wide array of classes and programs we offer...
