Elder Camp adds new dimension to J’s Elder Rehab

Fifteen people took part in Elder Camp, a Tucson Jewish Community Center first, on five consecutive Sunday afternoons ending July 1. The camp was the brainchild of recent University of Arizona graduate and Elder Rehab volunteer Rina Ornelas Ybarra, one of five bilingual volunteers who have conducted Elder Rehab’s exercise and cognitive stimulation sessions for memory-challenged seniors in Spanish. Elder Rehab is accepting applications for the fall 2018 semester, which begins the week of Sept. 10. For information, contact Sharon Arkin, Ph.D., at or 603-2912.
