‘Aging With Good Health’ to Be Addressed at The Lavy House in Westfield

An informational program called “Aging With Good Health,” for seniors and their families, will take place on Tuesday, September 26, 11:30 a.m. at The Senior Resource Center at The Lavy House, 748 E. Broad Street, Westfield, New Jersey. The program will be presented by Karen M. Ensle, Ed.D., RDN, FAND, CFCS, department head of family and community health sciences educator/associate professor of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County. A light lunch will be served. Dietary laws observed.

According to Dr. Ensle, “Healthy aging is important for older adults. Dietary intake, exercise, sleep, stress and spiritual needs, along with social and emotional needs, affect our overall health and wellness.” This program will review the components of “healthy aging,” including the importance of diet, exercise, social activity, productive pursuits and maintaining a sense of purpose in one’s life. Current research about the physical, social and emotional needs of older adults will be discussed.

The Senior Resource Center at The Lavy House is a joint venture between Jewish Family Service of Central New Jersey, Temple Emanu-El of Westfield and The Westfield United Fund. Through a grant from the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest New Jersey, Jewish Family Service of Central New Jersey provides programming and the services of social worker Naomi Kreutzer, LCSW, each Tuesday. Programs are free of charge and open to the entire community.
