There are various programs and activities available at this Center. It has four floors accessed by an elevator and on each floor different activities take place. Every day, the frail elderly come here from early morning until 2 pm and partake in breakfast, a snack and hot meal. The aim is to keep the elderly in their familiar surroundings while providing them with all necessary services such as medical, dental, social workers, social activities, classes in handwork, languages and the possibility of participating in organized day trips. Also the development of new skills becomes evident because of stimulation by social activity.
There are 600 elderly who are registered at the Center in the mornings, and in the afternoons approximately 120 pre-retirerees also participate in organized activities. The types of program offered are handiwork classes – artwork, silk printing, knitting, doll making. All these works are then sold in our non-profit Gift Shop. There are also classes in Hebrew, English, Computers, and Memory Improvement. Exercise. Dance classes are also arranged and there are two choirs which rehearse and perform at various events which are all performed by the elderly. There is also a synagogue where religious services and facilities are available.
As a way to show their appreciation and say, 'thank you", the headmaster suggested that the children who received the sandwiches now help the center by repairing the center's broken items, by delivering plants or even by performing for the Beit Frankforter's grandmothers.
