PSEG Long Island Cares About Local Seniors

EAC Network runs many programs to assist vulnerable seniors, from making sure they receive proper nutrition from Meals on Wheels or produce and healthy eating education through Fresh from the Garden, to maintaining regular exercise with Senior Health Promotion, to stepping in as a guardian when the individual is unable to make decisions with Community Guardianship. We’re always committed to the well-being of our seniors. However, physical needs aren’t the only important facet of a well-rounded life; keeping our seniors active mentally is just as important.

As we age, opportunities for socialization can wane. Without access to a car or public transportation, seniors must rely on family members or neighbors for company. They may feel lonely and isolated, and this only hastens the aging process. Senior Community Service Centers are the perfect solution to this issue.

Our Senior Centers provide participants with a hot lunch as well as fun activities like Zumba, bingo, board games, karaoke, field trips, and crafts. Occasionally, we have generous volunteers who team up with us to host a special craft, which is exactly what a team from PSEG Long Island did recently. PSEG has a long history of community outreach, and we’re always pleased to have their cheerful, supportive volunteers.

Volunteers Danielle and Christine from PSEG Long Island recently took trips to our Senior Centers in Hempstead and Port Washington to run crafts with our seniors. They showed our Hempstead and Port Washington seniors how to make plain mason jars and tissue paper into colorful vases filled with paper flowers.

Thank you, PSEG Long Island! To learn more about volunteering with our programs, email development@eac-network.org.
