Retiree Day Programs


Retiree Day Programs

Retiree Programs are meant for seniors with disabilities interested in full or partial withdrawal from the job market. For these individuals, Israel Elwyn offers opportunities for community volunteerism together with participation in day programs, enabling a rich social life that includes development of new areas of interest.
Retirees enjoy social interaction with peers, as well as a wide range of activities, physical, cognitive and emotional, adapted to age-sensitive needs. These activities include study groups, alternative medical services, and expressive and creative therapies such as autobiographical writing, computer lessons and more.
