Welcome to Silver Linings at Old Bridge (formerly known as the senior center). Our goal is to remain attractive to those of you who are already members and to attract those who are now just retiring and looking for a place to go. Our new image in the public eye eliminates the stereotypes of "older adults" as poor, lonely, and frail. We are more vibrant and active here than ever before. We hope to capture a much greater audience of members simply by taking advantage of the power of words and leveraging the creativity of the mature mind.
So our hope and goal is to be the "silver lining" for our members each and every day. The term "silver lining" emphasizes the hopeful side of a situation that might seem gloomy on the surface. The common expression "every cloud has a silver lining" means a comforting or hopeful aspect of an otherwise unhappy situation.
FIND BALANCE AT YOUR CENTER
Purpose * Fitness * Friendship * Learning
This year's national theme (Find Balance at Your Center) highlights the many ways individuals find balance and whole person wellness at their center. Individuals search to find balance between their own needs and competing demands and responsibilities. It is something we have to work on daily. The balance found at senior centers is directly connected to the whole person wellness programming that centers strive to achieve. This years program has been structured to include eight dimensions of wellness within four categories: Fitness, Learning, Purpose and Friendship
