The Gateway Family YMCA - WISE Center YMCA Branch is hosting an open house for their Adult Social Day Services Program on Friday, March 15th 1:30pm-2:30pm, located at 2095B Berwyn Street, Union, NJ.  The W.I.S.E. (Wellness, Independence and Socialization for our Elders) Adult Day Services Program is a social opportunity designed to help adults maintain their independence and improve their quality of life through activities designed to meet their special needs.  Caregivers are provided a necessary respite while their loved ones are cared for in a safe, secure and supportive environment. 

“The WISE Adult Social Day Services program has served our community for over 35 years, providing specialized care and services for a unique group of our members,” stated Krystal R. Canady, CEO, The Gateway Family YMCA. “Through WISE, our focus is providing support for the entire family unit.  Caregiving can be one of the most rewarding, yet stressful of life’s tasks.  It is our belief that assisting the caregiver is just as important as assisting their loved one.”

Mileski, EVP/COO, The Gateway Family YMCA.
