The Department of Senior Services provides a structured and comprehensive array of programs and services that improves the independence, community engagement and quality of life of adults, seniors and children of Deerfield Beach and northern Broward County. In 1981 the City of Deerfield Beach and the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Broward County partnered to develop the Northeast Focal Point Senior Center. Over the last 35 years, the N.E. Focal Point has expanded and now operates and administers an Alzheimer’s Day Care Center, Senior Center, Adult Day Services Center, a Multicultural Adult Day Services program, a Preschool and a Thrift Shop. By combining compassion with unparalleled service, the N.E. Focal point continues to grow while remaining a “Home Away From Home” for so many in our community.
The Senior Services Department is funded through a combination of federal and state administered grants, fees for services and fundraisers. Additionally, the N.E. Focal Point receives financial support from the Aging and Disability Resource Center, N.E. Focal Point CASA*, Inc. (Children’s, Alzheimer’s, Senior and Adult Services), United Way of Broward County, N.E. Focal Point Thrift Shop, and the City of Deerfield Beach General Fund.
The services that we provide are invaluable to the community and we welcome all donations and encourage you to volunteer with our organization.
