Research shows that older adults who are socially engaged have a lower risk of cognitive decline.
At the Dora Bingel Senior Center and Durham Booth Manor, we offer a variety of opportunities for older adults to connect in meaningful, fulfilling ways every day.
Iowa native Bonnie Worley lived in many countries with her husband, who was a cartographer in the Air Force, and their three children. But after a lifetime of moving from place to place, Bonnie values the community and homey atmosphere at Durham Booth Manor. "I like being with people my own age," she said. Bonnie particularly enjoys congregating with friends in the manor's great room and playing bingo in the adjacent Dora Bingel Senior Center. "The staff here is wonderful and very caring," she said. "Durham Booth Manor feels like home."
We provide a range of non-nursing services for older adults, including affordable housing, home-cooked meals and a variety of opportunities to connect and engage with others. Both Durham Booth Manor and Dora Bingel Center are located at 923 N. 38th St.
