Neponsit Health Care Welcomes Museum
DSSM Neponsit Adult Day Health Care Center, located at 230 Beach 102 Street, recently took part in a slide presentation provided by Amir Parsa, a lecturer and writer from the Museum of Modern Art Access Program.
Parsa encouraged participants from the center to interpret the meaning behind Realistic, Abstract and Surrealistic drawings and paintings, and how to express their feelings in poetic thoughts for "National Poetry Month." Several seniors discovered for the first time the power and sensitivity of the written word by reciting their own poems as a form of creative expression.
DSSM Neponsit ADHC is owned and operated by the New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation and is a member of the Central Brooklyn Family Health Network.
This program is a medical model Adult Day Health Care program offering medical services, nursing, social services, therapeutic recreation, nutrition counseling, and rehabilitative activities for elderly, cognitively impaired and physically disabled adults in the Rockaway community.
