Smile on Seniors was founded in 2016 by Rabbi Menachem and Esther Stern following the success of their programs for Jewish residents in non-Jewish facilities. As it took off, they began to run regular programs in various non-Jewish facilities in the Glen Eira and Stonnington areas.
We successfully launched Smile on Seniors to take our initiative to the next level. In addition to our regular Jewish programs, we provide pastoral care and have volunteers who visit residents. We also put a lot of focus on inter-generational programs with the youth.
We have many innovative and exciting plans moving forward. In 2017, Smile on Seniors purchased properties with a plan to create our own centre where we will host programs for seniors and the wider community with our inter-generational programs.
