The Jewish Family Service of Central NJ Coffee House, an innovative social and recreational program serving adults who have dementia resulting in mild memory loss, is back to meeting in person. The program provides participants the opportunity 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.

Professional staff provides entertainment, exercise, lunch, and transportation to Temple Sholom in Scotch Plains. The program meets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Funding is by JFSCNJ with the Healthcare Foundation of NJ, and the Union County Division on Aging; it is open and free to those in Union County who qualify. There’s also a private pay option. Email alopresti@jfscentralnj.org or call (908) 352-8375.
