Senior Services

If you believe that wisdom comes with age, Senior Services may be able to teach you a thing or two! Meeting eight times a year on the third Wednesday of the month, club members present a program and a workshop for local senior groups. To learn more please call Cathy Sutton.

Meetings are held at the Ocean County Southern Service Center, 179 S. Main St. (the corner of Routes 9 and 72) in Manahawkin.
"A Friend's House"
Described as "a special adult day services program," "A Friend's House" is run by the Visiting Home Care Service of Ocean County to supplement home care for "adults experiencing confusion, disorientation and memory loss due to aging, illness, or social isolation." Once a month, the Garden Club of LBI offers a flower-arranging workshop or other gardening project under a separate program chaired by Dell Hardman.
