Helping Seniors and Caregivers in Mount Laurel, NJ
The Tender is a non-profit adult social day center and caregiver support program. Our programs began in 1977 and our name refers to the small boat (a tender) that ferries passengers from the shore to the waiting ship, a gentle metaphor for the journey of aging.
Our center provides a safe, engaging, and caring atmosphere for older adults. Enabling people with Alzheimer’s disease/dementia and frail seniors to age in place with dignity by providing them with services that foster independence. This time also allows caregivers respite to decrease the burden of caregiving even just for a short period of time.
At The Tender, each day is focused on socialization, creative expression, and cognitive engagement. A weekly support group meeting is held that provides community, education, and support to caregivers. We believe in partnership with the client and family, to provide services that fit your needs and rediscover what makes you happy.
