Program and free lunch for Englewood seniors

Englewood Hospital and Medical Center is hosting a program on Thursday, April 7, as part of the “Age-Friendly Englewood Coalition,” which works to make it easier for seniors to age successfully in place.

The program starts at 10 a.m., in the hospital’s Chiang Auditorium with “Englewood Hospital and Medical Center — Your Hospital for Life.” Afterward, Englewood residents, 60+, will fill out a survey to assess their needs and their perceptions of what is available in Englewood.

The program includes lunch. For a kosher lunch call (201) 410-6645 or email

The Age-Friendly Englewood community survey is available online at In addition to the program at the hospital, residents may pick up a paper copy of the survey in the Englewood Public Library’s reference room. Residents can use the library’s computers to fill in the survey, or a paper version, and return it to the library.

Residents are asked to submit only one version of the survey, whether online or on paper.

The coalition to date includes more than 30 Englewood nonprofit and civic organizations, communities of faith, and offices of city government. The mayor, city council, and city manager also are involved. Coalition partners are listed on the website.

The Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation awarded a $35,000 six-month planning grant to the Southeast Senior Center for Independent Living to spearhead the project. Janet Sharma, who was CEO of the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, is the project’s coordinator.
