Open Door

A unique day program for older adults with developmental disabilities

As people with developmental disabilities age, they face new challenges that can lead to greater isolation and unhappiness; our program offers a safe and warm setting that fosters an enhanced quality of life and a source of comfort for families.

Recreation, education and physical fitness activities provide opportunities for socialization and building self-esteem and the chance to communicate with peers.

Open Door activities include:

• Group discussion
• Music and arts and crafts
• Outings to parks
• Parties and other large group activities
• Yoga, Zumba and virtual bowling
• Hot nutritious lunch

Participants take part in Senior Center activities that allow them to get to know a more diverse group of adults and feel a greater sense of belonging.
Programming is in English and Spanish.
Open Door operates Monday through Friday, 9 am to 2 pm.

Transportation within catchment area available (most of Northern Manhattan).
Wheelchair accessible.
