Nassau County, NY – Hempstead-based EAC Network has taken over the operations of the North Merrick and Long Beach Senior Community Service Centers, as well as Long Beach Meals on Wheels and Long Beach Case Management, which had been contracted previously by JASA (Jewish Association Serving the Aging). The programs are funded by the Nassau County Office for the Aging.
The human service agency adds the North Merrick location at the Jewel Quinn Senior Center, 1260 Meadowbrook Road, and the Long Beach location at 75 East Walnut Street, to its existing Senior Centers, also contracted with the Nassau County Office for the Aging, at St. Stephen’s Church, 9 Carlton Avenue in Port Washington, and United Methodist Church, 40 Washington Street in Hempstead.
“We are thrilled to expand our senior center operations to two new service areas,” said Angela Malone, Division Director of Health Services at EAC Network. “We have been working on a smooth transition, asking seniors what they enjoy and what additional programming might be of interest to them. We’re also hoping to expand the centers’ reach within their own communities, so even more seniors can reap the benefits of the socialization, hot meals, transportation, and wide range of activities that the centers offer.”
“The increased integration of Long Beach strengthens our presence within the community and our ability to reach so many seniors in different and new ways,” said Lance W. Elder, President & CEO at EAC Network. “This is an excellent opportunity for us to be able to help even more older adults.”
The Long Beach Senior Center serves the communities of Long Beach, Atlantic Beach, Lido Beach, and Point Lookout. The North Merrick Senior Center serves North Merrick, Bellmore, East Meadow, Hicksville, Levittown, Merrick North Bellmore, and Plainedge.
The Hempstead Senior Center serves Hempstead, Garden City, Lakeview, and Uniondale. The Port Washington Senior Center serves Port Washington, Greenvale, Old Westbury, and Roslyn.
