The Camden County Senior Center is a “home away from home” for senior citizens, according to its director, Jasmine Wilson.

“The senior center eliminates isolation and promotes socialization,” said Wilson.

Wilson has been the Camden County Senior Center director for the last eight months. She was previously the senior center’s activities coordinator for six years.

Wilson said the best aspect of her job is helping seniors “celebrate life” and independence.
