Senior Program Serving The Senior Residents Of South Boston
The focus of the South Boston Neighborhood House Senior Program is to reduce social isolation by offering our senior citizens activities and services designed to maintain their dignity, health, independence, and self-confidence.
The program’s focus is on enhancing their physical, intellectual and creative wellbeing through exercise, interaction, technology and art classes. The Neighborhood House provides seniors with information and referrals for support and assistance in areas of personal concern such as managing finances, obtaining legal assistance, advice on health and welfare plans, and opportunities to expand their social networks and activities.
