Senior Services

The Department of Senior Services is informed by the varied needs of the West Orange senior community, as well as the 8 Domains of Livability, as set forth by the World Health Organization and AARP. These domains are guideposts for identifying and addressing the diverse needs of the West Orange older adult community.  

Senior services and programming encompass an array of events and classes related to health and education, art and recreation, wellness, socialization and support, general information, and individual resources, as appropriate. We offer Recreation classes at discounted rates held throughout the year at various locations, including the Ginny Duenkel Pool, Katz Community Center and O’Connor Park, as well as virtually, by Zoom.   

We strongly support senior educational and intergenerational programs and value close collaboration with the West Orange Public Library, West Orange Department of Health, the West Orange Recreation Department and the Board of Education.   Education, health and fitness are key goals for a healthy and informed senior community.   

For program information and registration, please contact the Department of Senior Services at 973-325-4105.  To join our mailing list (email only), please email us at If you have additional ideas or suggestions, please email
