Flicker Residences for Older Adults
Quality of Life Through Connection and Support
The Judith B. Flicker Residences Program is aimed at providing a superior quality of life for people over 50 with autism and intellectual or developmental disabilities, in a serene setting in Voorhees, New Jersey.
Programming is aimed at meeting the diverse needs, interests and activity levels of older and aging adults — keeping them engaged and supported while respecting their individual needs and desires.
The Flicker program features six homes surrounding a spacious central courtyard linked by a sunny indoor walkway. Each resident has their own private bedroom within walking distance to communal space for recreational and social activities and day program activities.
Maximizing Mobility, Emotional Stability and Quality of Life
Residents participate in social and recreational activities, including visits to regional theater, sporting events and recreation outside the residences and special guest performances by local artists.
Nurse case managers closely monitor the health needs of each individual, and staff receives specialized training on the exceptional needs of an aging population.
Bancroft’s philosophy of lifelong learning does not end when a person turns 50. At Flicker, therapeutic activities specialists and other staff continue helping residents build new skills and take part in art, music, and other activities tailored to each person’s interests.
