We enhance the lives of seniors through
our innovative programs and services.
Founded in 1956, North Shore Senior Center’s original intent was to enrich the lives of older adults by giving them a place to socialize, volunteer and learn. Later, counseling and social services were offered. Since our founding our mission has been to foster the independence and well-being of older adults, enhance their dignity and self-respect, and promote their participation in and contribution toward all aspects of community life.
Our goal is to give seniors the assistance they need to live safely and comfortably in their own homes so they can “age in place” and avoid premature, long-term nursing home placement. We do this by focusing our work on: Senior and Family Services offers in-home and community-based services; House of Welcome Adult Day Services offers programs for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias; Lifelong Learning offers programs to promote physical and mental health; North Shore Senior Options provides seniors and their families options to improve safety, well-being, and quality of life—now and in the future; and Volunteer Services provides a place for our volunteers to socialize, explore their interests and find the support they need.
The Mission of North Shore Senior Center is to foster the independence and well-being of older adults, enhance their dignity and self respect, and promote their participation in and contribution toward all aspects of community life.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the
number of seniors age 65 and older in 2010 was 40,228,712. The
projected number for 2030 is 72,091,915. Twenty years after that, the
number of seniors in the same category will be at 88,546,973. Those
seniors will have new needs and concerns not experienced by their
parents. Many will be disabled and greater numbers will suffer from dementia and experience increased isolation. Who will understand and meet their needs?
North Shore Senior Center will. We have been in the business of serving
seniors since 1956 and have built a reputation of caring, competence
and professionalism. We, better than many organizations, possess the
experience, combined with a vision for the future, that can sustain today’s
seniors and those of tomorrow. We are the “go to” community organization
for local clergy, police and community members who know of seniors
needing help or who need education themselves to address the needs of
older community or family members. Our reach even extends internationally
as we provide individual case management services to an increasing
number of local seniors with families living abroad.
