The JCC Healthy Senior Adults Program offers year-round nutrition, fitness, recreation, education and cultural activities that ensure the health, social connection and independent living of senior adults in our community.  The Senior Adult Nutrition Program, providing both congregate and home-delivered meals, is connected to Sports & Wellness programs, in order to meet the total wellness needs of seniors in our community.

  • The JCC is the only Kosher Nutrition Site in the state of Kentucky, serving hot lunch Monday-Friday at the Center and delivering it to the homes of disabled and homebound seniors.
