SCAN - Social Community Activities Network
SCAN offers education and resources for active adults aged 50+. Classes include art, music, fitness, yoga, technology, and more. Resources include SHIP counseling for Medicare. There are also several events held each year such as a Senior Expo, Brain Health Fair, and several Lunch & Learns.
SCAN is a non-profit adult social education and resource center founded in 1988. The name reflects the action-oriented profile of its members and the vibrancy and social networking strength of the organization. SCAN programs sustain independence, health, and happiness among people fifty years of age and older in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. SCAN itself is a place where Active Adults meet to be Informed, Empowered, and Inspired.
SCAN’s Mission is to provide an active support system for those over the age of 50. SCAN uses education and technology to create an environment where the aging population can continue to grow intellectually as well as physically and emotionally, thereby allowing older adults to thrive — not just survive.
SCAN’s programming falls within four divisions: the Hub includes the Monmouth Mall location and public education; SCAN on Wheels brings our high impact programming directly into high-needs communities; the Multi-Media division includes our three cable TV shows and our social media; Caregivers First, our newest division, is entirely devoted to the specific needs of Caregivers.
