Another area of retooling was its in-person programs, Golden Slipper Gems,
which traditionally offers everything from recreational activities, such as games
and entertainment, to courses that explore popular topics in depth and intro-
duce older adults to new areas of learning and experience. Gems programs and
services are tailored to each of their locations to meet the specific needs of that
community.
Programs take place at Adath Israel on the Main Line, at Shir Ami in Bucks
County and at Federation Housing locations. Golden Slipper had already
explored the idea of meeting its members where they were and had started the
year with a new pilot program that took all in-person programming at both the
Bucks and Main Line locations and putting them online under one banner. The
program started out strong, but then in March they had to move fully online.
“The staff didn’t miss a beat; they just jumped right in,” Simon explained.
“But moving everything to Zoom, including our lecture series, was our main
concern. The average age of our members is 80 and only half of them use email
or are online at all, so we were concerned that Zoom classes might not work. But
we could not have been more wrong.”
Simon noted that attendance has been extremely high for each session, and
