The Lucky Seniors is a senior congregate meal and wellness program. The goal of the program is to improve the health and mental health of area Asian seniors through nutritional and socialization activities. Seniors from throughout the NE Ohio regional meet regularly for educational, nutritional and social activities. At each meeting the seniors are served a culturally relevant meal, perform Asian exercises, engage in line dancing, study English, attend musical and artistic events, and provide volunteer services to the community at special events.
“This program offered us, the seniors, opportunity to talk among our folks. It is extremely helpful for us not only physically, but also mentally. Thank you so much.”
