Hamilton Grove Healthcare and Rehabilitation was happy to honor the wonderful work of Lawaner Sykes and the Reading Senior Center recently, by placing this ad in their yearbook.
The Reading Senior Center does much to enhance the lives of seniors in Trenton, NJ and we share their passion and commitment to infusing our seniors with meaningful activities, events and programs throughout the year.
About the Office on Aging
The City of Trenton’s Division of Community Relations & Social Services provides senior services to older adults, aged 60 or over, who are Trenton residents. There is no fee for services.
The Division’s Office on Aging provides information and referral assistance, linkages to community resources, and help completing various forms, such as those for rent abatement, taxes, Lifeline, Social Security, Home Energy, PAAD, and other health insurance forms. Any assistance that can be provided to a senior is given by the Office on Aging. Home visits are often provided for incapacitated and home-bound senior customers.
The transportation unit provides transportation to and from senior centers. It also serves as a means to assist the elderly with grocery shopping, medical or dental appointments, or any other emergency issues.
Senior centers provide a variety of programs and recreational activities, which promote socialization and assist in maintaining economic self-support for the older adults. Activities include, but are not limited to: nutrition, painting, singing, dancing, bingo, sewing, on-site social services, health workshops, sign language classes, card playing, and cultural and recreation trips. Currently, there are four City-operated senior centers and the Reading location is one of them.
