Debbie Druce, Seniors Coordinator
Together on Tuesday was created ten years ago to accommodate seniors of the congregation, 55 years and up, who are retired and are looking for interesting programs and events in which they may participate.
The programs are social, intellectual and educational. Knowledgeable speakers on Judaism, current events, politics and the arts are invited. Parties featuring professional entertainment are held several times a year. Excursions to the theater, concerts and places of interest are offered on a regular basis. One needn't be a member of the congregation in order to participate. There are modest yearly dues and a small donation to cover a weekly lunch.
New Website for Older Adults & Caregivers
JFS has built a comprehensive website for its Elderlink program with a grant from The Grotta Fund for Senior Care. Elderlink is an one-stop connection to eldercare services in the MetroWest community and the dynamic new website,www.elderlinkmetrowest.org, provides access to resources and information for well elderly and adult children of aging parents.
Elderlink features downloadable guides, glossaries, links to local and national agencies, and checklists for conversations caregivers to have with the elderly. Confidential contact forms and an anonymous satisfaction survey are available on the site as well.
