Center Receives a Grant from The Jim Moran Foundation
A generous two-year grant from The Jim Moran Foundation will fund two new SAGES: Senior Adult Group Experiences support groups for low-income seniors at St. Andrew Tower in Pompano and St. Elizabeth Garden in Coral Springs. These residences are run under Catholic Health Services ---also a not for profit.
SAGES enables the elderly to avoid the negative psychosocial effects of isolation. Senior support groups provide a means to preserve and enhance seniors' cognitive abilities, as well as their physical health. Research has shown that social support has a buffering effect, protecting against the negative symptoms of mental disorders, particularly those associated with depression.
We are extremely grateful to The Jim Moran Foundation for enabling us to expand our SAGES program to Broward County.
