Themed event encourages older adults to socialize and remain active in the community

CLEVELAND, Ohio (May 31, 2023) - The Rose Centers for Aging Well, a program of Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging, is once again opening its doors for a “Senior” Prom for older adults this Saturday.

WHAT: Rose Centers Senior Prom
WHEN: Saturday, June 3, 2023 | 4-7 p.m.
WHERE: Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging
11890 Fairhill Road, Cleveland OH 44120

Adults aged 60+ are invited to enjoy a night of dinner, dancing and socializing, and this year’s “Sock Hop” theme hearkens back to the 1950s informal dances that many older adults remember. The event will take place in the conference center at Benjamin Rose headquarters, which overlooks downtown Cleveland. Tickets are $10 per person, available at the door.

Senior Prom is just one of many activities and outings that the Rose Centers offer to empower older adults to remain engaged and reduce the risk of social isolation. “It’s just great for meeting people, we have a lot of friends here, people are nice,” says Gunning Park Rose Center attendee Michael [last name]. “And, it gets you out of the house for 4-5 hours a day. We love to go on the trips [...] I’ve been in Cleveland since 1958 and since I came here, I’ve seen places in Cleveland that I never dreamed of seeing.”

The Rose Centers for Aging Well exists to promote successful aging for Northeast Ohio’s adults by offering opportunities, programs and services that foster choice and independence. There are six Rose Centers locations throughout the Greater Cleveland area, each with a vibrant community of older adults utilizing their services.
