JFSCNJ memory loss program returns in person

The Jewish Family Service of Central NJ coffee house day program for adults with memory loss is meeting in person again. The meetings are at Temple Sholom in Scotch Plains on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., serving Union County and parts of Somerset County.

It’s an innovative social and recreational program for adults who have mild memory loss due to dementia. It offers an opportunity for them to use and strengthen physical and cognitive abilities, increase self-esteem, form friendships, and have fun. The goal is to enhance the overall well-being of each participant in a safe and stimulating environment.

Entertainment, exercise, kosher lunch, and transportation all are provided by professional staff.

The program is funded by the Healthcare Foundation of NJ, the Jewish Family Service of Central NJ, and the Union County Division on Aging.
