Last month, the Newark Senior Center celebrated the grand opening of “The Oasis.” The newly renovated space is the result of over three years of learning, planning, development, and execution. The 3,500 square foot space allows NSC to facilitate more programming and provide needed services to our community. The Oasis is home to the Center’s Meeting of Minds program, a guided group experience for those dealing with early memory loss. Due to the renovations, the program is now able to operate five days a week and serve a larger array of clients.

In addition, the Oasis has a treatment room which allows space for facials, chair massages, foot care, and more. If that weren’t enough, the space also contains a consolation room which is home to our Medicare/ Medicaid Counseling, Highmark Outreach Center, Stand By Me- Financial Coaching, and Community Legal Aid Services.
The Newark Senior Center is entering its 51st year of service to the community better able to continue to meet the changing needs of seniors in the Greater Newark Area. Thank you to all who played a part!
