Casa Feliz Older Adult Program
Casa Feliz is a warm and friendly environment where older adults enjoy daily fellowship, health education, arts and crafts, hot meals, and field trips! Our older adults celebrate birthdays and all major holidays with activities such as dancing, karaoke, guests instrumentalists and DJs. Between 2018 and 2023, Casa Feliz enrollment has more than doubled, growing to 60 senior community members. Once a week, the program receives fresh fruits and vegetables for distribution.
The goals of the program consist of creating social networks and reducing isolationism, improving strength and balance, maintaining cognitive health, encouraging a positive nutritional status and promoting health and chronic disease management.
Additionally, Casa Feliz has an outreach program in which staff and older adults visit those who are unable to attend the Center, to ensure they, too, are provided a social network.
