IPC Senior Outreach Program aims to reduce social isolation and maintain a community network of friendship and support.


The program began when two elderly Irish citizens died alone. The IPC responded immediately to reduce isolation. In an effort to assist in positive and healthy aging, we are delighted to announce our Senior Café’s Return Along With New Programs:
