Senior Care

Senior Care Ministry



First Presbyterian offers opportunities and resources for seniors and their families. During the pandemic, seniors can keep in touch with the life of the church through online worship and Bible study and through email news. If you know a senior who doesn't use a computer, contact the church for information on how to dial in to worship using only a phone and on how to receive the weekly email in print form.

Additional programs and resources are currently under development. Check back to see what might appeal to you as this ministry grows. If you wish to learn more, make suggestions, or ask for assistance for you or a loved one, contact Pastor Nikki Passante, npassante@haddonfieldpres.org.

 

Opportunities


TELL YOUR STORY – Mabel Kay Senior Center is excited to announce a new project starting in October: you (Haddonfield seniors) will have the opportunity to document your own life story (with a little help of course). Mabel Kay will be collaborating with a 9th-grade English class from Haddonfield Memorial High School to write your memoir. The students will meet with you over the course of the semester, interview you, get to know your life story, write it up, and hand you a finished product for you to keep or to hand down to your family (a holiday gift perhaps?). We even have a professional photographer, Amanda Hall Studios, volunteering her time to take photos for the final product. We will be COVID-conscious and either meet outside if the weather is nice, inside with masks, or via Zoom technology if necessary. (We’ll talk you through Zoom if you don’t know how to use it.) Intergenerational programming is one of our goals at Mabel Kay – such a great way for kids to learn from you and you to learn from the kids. RSVPs are mandatory and it will require a commitment on your part to attend the sessions with the kids since it is a class assignment (loosely once a week for four weeks, exact timing TBD). Contact Sheri Siegel, ssiegel@haddonfield-nj.gov or (856) 354-8789, with questions or to sign up. Write on!

Mabel Kay Calendar is available under the Resources tab.
