Misler Center

Alternate Name: Misler Center

Organization: Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington

Activity programming is at the heart of the Misler Center experience. Days at Misler are filled with enriching activities, with programs tailored to meet the needs of people with a range of cognitive and physical abilities.

Throughout the day, there are two activity periods and participants select from at least two choices each time. Staff are always there to help those who need encouragement. For those with memory loss, it is all about staying “in the moment.” For those with physical challenges, we strive to maximize capabilities, no matter what the diagnosis. Our goal is to exercise all the “muscles” of the person – the body and the mind!

The monthly activities calendar is very popular among participants and families alike. It illustrates the planning of the staff for activities that include:

Discussion groups on topics ranging from current events to ancient philosophy
Physical exercise, including strength training, chair aerobics, stretching and games
Therapeutic arts and crafts projects
Writing workshops and literature based activities
Musical performances and programs by local artists, including opera, and instrumental and vocal performances by community and school groups
Word games
Reminiscing programs
Field trips/outings to museums, parks, and nearby attractions
Nutrition and health talks with our RNs
