Support from Steadfast Partners and Collaborators
The City of Wadsworth recognizes the value of older adults in our community and has supported the operations and facilities of Soprema Senior Center for over forty years. In addition, the Center enjoys the steadfast support and of the Wadsworth Older Adults Foundation and its many Professional Friends.
The Foundation provides resources for a number of unique initiatives and Professional Friends work collaboratively with Center staff to offer a wide variety of meaningful and relevant programs for seniors. The Wadsworth Older Adults Foundation is the primary source of support for the following special programs offered at the Soprema Senior Center:
This lively groups meets monthly for fellowship and fun all around one central theme… the love of gardening! Participants enjoy a wide variety of enriching opportunities including learning about native Ohio plants, taking field trips to local parks and exploring the creative side of gardening through arts and crafts.
This fun program helps seniors learn new skills or refresh skills by making beautiful and useful items to keep or give away as gifts. The group also engages in annual “Charity Sew” projects, making items for local non-profit organizations.
Take 55+ Players
This group is comprised of Center members who have a passion for entertainment. With participants ranging from age 60 to 100, this dynamic and often zany group entertains at the Senior Center as well as at nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other local venues.
Inter-Generational Technology Program
This educational program links high school students with older adults in a creative and inspirational way. High school student volunteers provide one-on-one assistance to help older adults navigate the sometimes-complicated world of technology. The inter-generational connections are priceless, as the students serve as “mentors” to their senior citizen friends, who are greatly appreciative of the opportunities to learn new skills.
