Port Washington Senior Center Participates in Thanksgiving Luncheon Celebration
We hope you and your family enjoyed a bountiful meal this Thanksgiving! Seniors at our Port Washington Senior Center enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving lunch with their peers, as not everyone has a family to celebrate with. Our senior centers provide a place where seniors can interact, socialize, and enjoy each other's company, as well as participate in activities including exercise, games, arts and crafts, and more.
Congratulations to Carmine Inserra, Board Member and Board Chairman Emeritus, (left) for 20 years of service, and Geri Gregor, Board Member, (right) for 10 years of service on the EAC Network Board of Directors, pictured with Richard Kessel, Board Chair (center). Thank you for your friendship, leadership, guidance, and support!
Words of Gratitude from an In-Home Respite Client
"It is with great delight that I sing the praises of your organization and the companion that represents you, Abby. In the beginning there was a lot of trepidation about having someone sit in the house with my wife, Jennie. She was not happy about a stranger invading her space. My wife is an introverted and quiet woman, but after the second visit she loosened up and really enjoyed Abby’s company. When I tell my wife that Abby is coming her whole mood brightens. Even our dog gets excited and waits at the window for Abby and goes crazy when she arrives. When Abby is here I hear a lot of giggling and good cheer. When I come home at the end of Abby’s stay my wife is so relaxed and happy. Abby is a sensitive and caring person who is a credit to your organization." -Robert

As the number of seniors increase, so does the number of individuals with cognitive disabilities such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia as well as other mental illness or disabilities. These elderly and vulnerable adults, as well as younger adults who are mentally and/or physically incapacitated, especially those with little or no income, are all too often abandoned and unable to maintain their affairs, or fall victim to abuse, financial exploitation, victimization, health issues, and loss of property. Community Guardianship manages the affairs of incapacitated adults to allow them to maintain their independence as much as possible. Learn more here .
