Alzheimer/Caregiver Support Group

Our Alzheimer Support group will resume in September. This group is not only for Alzheimer caregivers, but for any caregivers.  The program is facilitated by Valerie Formisano, R.N., and is designed to help families and caregivers have the opportunity to discuss with others in the same situation ideas and questions about caregiving as well as pertinent information for Alzheimer.  This program is registered with the Alzheimer's association.

Accredited by the National Institute of Senior Centers

On June 26, 2014 the NCOA Accreditation Board  met and unanimously approved the recommendation for re-accreditation of 55 Kip Center!! Accreditation provides official recognition that a senior center meets the nine standards of senior center operations. Completing the process showed our board, staff, members and community leaders that our senior center met the highest national standards.  As a new generation looks to redefine retirement, 55 Kip center is prepared to reflect a more empowered vision of aging.

Accreditation is an official mark of excellence. It portrays the senior center in a positive light in terms of being a viable, fundable, and qualified provider of services with the community.  According to the Administration on Aging, there are approximately 11,000 senior centers in the Unite States.  55 Kip center is among 110 senior centers who met the standards as developed by NISC for National Accreditation.  In NJ, 55 Kip Center shares this achievement with West Windsor Senior Center and Hamilton Township.

We are proud of our achievement and invite you to celebrate with us at our Open House on Saturday, Sept. 13th from 10:00 to 2:00. Further details to follow.

Boiling Springs Savings Bank Community Alliance Program (CAP)

We have been very fortunate to be the recipient of $6648 in the first quarter of 2011 from the Boiling Springs Savings Bank CAP program. Through its Community Alliance Program (CAP), Boiling Springs donates a percentage of depositors’ account balances to qualified non-profit organizations based on registration forms received at the bank. The percentage to be donated will be ¼ to ½ percent, depending on the type of account registered. There are no fees, no cost to you, and all information is strictly confidential. Thank you to those who have already joined for 55 Kip Center, or if you bank at Boiling Springs we would appreciate you looking into this program. They have opened the program to include businesses!
