There seems to be very few options in terms of caring for senior citizens. Often, caregivers are left having to choose whether or not they’ll host an elderly parents in their home, or place them in an assisted living facility. While in-home care is sometimes preferred, the costs affiliated are astronomical. Assisted living is also expensive, and many facilities simply don’t take the care necessary to ensure that your loved one’s needs are being met in a compassionate way that also ropes in a lively sense of community and socialization. Here at the Senior Social Club, a Margate adult day center, we pride ourselves on being able to provide compassion, care and community, all in one location and in an affordable way.
Who We Are

Our employees and volunteers are passionate about what we do, and we pride ourselves on being able to provide the best in care and community to senior attendees. We are qualified to supervise those with special needs, and we’re also there simply for companionship. We can manage medications, we can facilitate friendships, we can join your loved ones in a game of cards.

Services We Provide
We understand that every senior that walks through our door has a unique set of needs.

In every case, special attention is given to each club member in a way that will be a beneficial experience for all.
Our on-site services include free visits to quality medical providers – physicians, podiatrists, physiotherapists, speech and occupational therapists, opticians, incontinence assistants, and personal care assistants.

Group and individual activities abound during the day to ensure that no member is ever bored or mentally unstimulated.
