FOR THOSE 60+ – EARLY STAGE + GEMS II
All programs require an assessment to ensure proper placement.
EARLY STAGE MEMORY LOSS PROGRAM
GEMS I includes a support group, exercise, memory strengthening exercises, guest speakers, and lunch. Members share experiences with others facing similar challenges and learn about resources to assist them. Scholarship Fund for GEMS I is made possible in part through a legacy provided by Alice Gross in memory of Abe Gross.
SOCIAL ADULT DAY PROGRAM FOR THOSE 60+
The Denise & Robert Silverberg Family Friendship Circle and GEMS II programs provide a structured, stimulating environment that encourages social, cognitive, and physical stimulation through a variety of group activities for those with memory or functional impairment as a result of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke, etc. Coffee, snacks, and a hot kosher lunch are provided.

“This program has improved my husband’s life ten-fold! Recognizing there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, the Adult Day Program is the best medication. I found it so challenging to plan my husband’s social calendar and now thanks to SJJCC he is not bored, he is constantly enjoying new activities. Socialization is vital.”
