Golden Slipper Gems offerings range from recreational activities such as games and entertainment to courses that explore popular topics in depth and introduce older adults to new areas of learning and experience. Our programs and services are tailored to each of our locations to meet the specific needs of that community.
Golden Slipper inspires older adults to live independently, actively and engaged.
Golden Slipper Gems envisions a society where every older adult is honored as a valuable and treasured asset.
We were founded in 1995 as a traditional senior center located in Wynnefield Heights and although we no longer serve that location, today our reach has become far more expansive serving older adults at eight locations across the Greater Philadelphia Region. In 2018, we changed our name to Golden Slipper Gems to better reflect our growing organization.
