Club SEQUOIA

 

Club SEQUOIA is a wellness center for active seniors designed to reduce isolation and encourage healthy aging through physical, spiritual, mental and recreational stimulation. Programs are provided four days a week, three hours a day. 

Club SEQUOIA is a member of National Institute of Senior Centers. Senior centers are where communities embrace the opportunities and challenges of aging. They serve as a gateway connecting older adults, their families, and the community to resources that enable older adults (and eventually everyone as they age) to stay healthy, secure, and independent.

 

Activities

Daily programming consists of:

  • lectures
  • discussion groups
  • book club
  • games
  • arts and crafts
  • daily exercise
  • birthday celebrations
  • kosher lunch
  • major secular and Jewish holiday themed parties
  • special events, and much more!
Lunch

Seniors often need assistance in accessing services to meet their changing financial and health care needs. Trained social workers are available to assist in applying for benefits and accompanying to appointments. Seniors dealing with life challenges, loss and family issues benefit from weekly therapy appointments with clinical social  workers. Most services are medicare eligible.

Silver Sneakers

The Silver Sneakers Fitness® program is a fun, energizing program that helps older adults take greater control of their health by encouraging physical activity and offering social events. If your insurance offers Silver Sneakers or Optum Fitness Advantage as a benefit, you can attend all regular Club SEQUOIA programs for free
