The Northeast Contemporary Services, Inc. (NCSI) Senior Service offers individuals the opportunity to join fun and creative activities that support their retirement from work and/or other traditional day services.
At their bright, cheery, and fully accessible location in Roseville, the seniors of NCSI can paint, bead, do ceramics, play cards, cook, practice Tai Chi, sew, plant, visit with friends, sing, read, feed the pets, and stay as active as they choose to be. Each group is designed to promote positive ways for the seniors to spend their leisure time, connect with others, and have fun!
In addition to the busy on-site groups, NCSI seniors can join trips into their neighborhoods, such as to farmers’ markets, parks, museums, stores, zoos, ice cream parlors, libraries, restaurants, and other fun destinations. Special activities and events such as sponsoring a baby Orangutan at the Como Zoo, organizing a linen drive for a wildlife rehabilitation center, visiting friends recuperating at nursing homes, making and delivering May Day baskets, donning Red Hats for luncheons, and joining groups at local senior centers provide opportunities for enriching, integrative experiences.
The staff members of the NCSI Senior Service specialize in the unique support needs of an aging individual with developmental disabilities. Through close partnerships with residential service providers, legal representatives, county case managers, family members, and other members of the team, NCSI staff strive to provide holistic services to each senior that are focused on their health, safety, and happiness!
