Educational Programs

With the goal of providing knowledge as well as important updates and resources to the older adults in our communities, NCDF strives to offer a variety of enriching educational programs and informational presentations. House Meetings are held at a few of the properties to share in-house updates and as well as resources from within the greater Newton community. Through collaborations with local pharmacies and Newton’s Board of Health, we can offer in-house vaccination clinics for flu and COVID-19. Educational programs like ESL, Short Story Group and Current Events Discussions are offered throughout the month.
