Day to Day Operations
Here are some highlights of our recent accomplishments:
Name Change: In September 2009 Harleysville Senior Center became Encore Experiences at Harleysville.
The Encore Café Opened: Encore Experiences is has created revolutionary changes to the traditional congregate meal program, by opening “The Encore Café”. The café differs from the traditional program flexible seating times are offered, no advanced registration required, and meal options include “the special of the day”, soup, salads, or sandwiches, and we are open to the public. In the past year Encore Experiences has seen a 17% increase in the number of people and a 15% increase in meals served.
Information and Assistance Services: This has been a particular priority in the recent economy. Encore Experiences offers free tax preparation services in partnership with AARP and VITA volunteers from the North Penn Collaborative for Health and Human Services. Also offered is financial and legal advice, assistance with rebates, Medicare and healthcare options, and access to other agencies and government services. In the past year Encore Experiences has assisted an additional 11% of known people in their data base and a 306% increase in anonymous requests.
Partnerships: Collaborative partnerships including partnering with RSVP of Montgomery County and the Indian Valley YMCA have added value to the programs and services offered at Encore Experiences. Encore Experiences just completed a partnership agreement with Genesis Housing to provide credit counseling services and we are in conversations with Health Quality Partnership to offer healthy lifestyle case management.
