JIG Media Announces Its Expansion of New York for Seniors® With the ‘Social Scene’ Program for Senior Centers, Adult Day Centers and Nursing Homes in New York City

Today it was announced that JIG Media is further expanding its New York for Seniors initiative, with the launching of the New York for Seniors® ‘Social Scene’ program.

“We are always thinking of better, and more innovative ways to keep seniors active in New York City, and the New York for Seniors’ Social Scene program hits the mark”, stated Vernon Jones, Sr. CEO of JIG Media.  “All studies point to an improved quality of life for seniors who remain active. Our Social Scene program provides a menu of activities that encourage seniors to socialize and remain active. We’re bringing live jazz to the centers, exercise programs by trained instructors, manicures by stylists, paint and sip parties, and many other activities. For centers looking to bring these activities to their seniors, we have an Activities Menu, which allows centers to choose multiple activities for the month, or they can schedule a series of events for up to 12 months.”

Wayne E. Jordan, Director of New York for Seniors stated, “besides the obvious benefits of having exciting activities inside of centers throughout New Yok City, we also promote the events on the events calendar, and in the New York for Seniors print magazine.  Hyper-focused promotion is essenital when it comes to reaching seniors. Our events calendar is shared and read by thousands of seniors and caregivers every month, and the magazine is distributed at senior centers, hospitals, senior-focused events, elected officials offices and community centers.  This initiative is two-fold; providing exciting activities for seniors and increasing senior center membership through our marketing efforts.  Seniors need to stay active, and this initiative was created with that sole purpose in mind.”

JIG Media has additional expansion plans in the works. They encourage seniors, caregivers and center directors to make sure they pick up the New York for Seniors magazine, visit the website and definitely attend the New York for Seniors Health & Wellness Resource events.
