  Welcome to the PrimeTime Institute, a program of ElderCare of Alachua County.
A program of ElderCare of Alachua County, PrimeTime Institute (PTI) provides educational programs and social activities intent on keeping seniors active, healthy and participating in lifelong learning through low cost, sociable networking. PTI is operated by volunteers and is self-funded through annual membership ($15 for September 2015 to August 2016), donations, fundraising, etc. You do not have to be a PTI member to attend our educational programs.  A small donation is appreciated from non-members, but not required.  We appreciate the speakers that provide free programs for our seniors -- however, please understand that PTI does not endorse any company, product, or service.

ElderCare of Alachua County is a non-profit organization providing a wide variety of services for seniors such as Meals on Wheels, Alz Place, etc.  ElderCare operates the Senior Recreation Center.

As members of the 50+ crowd we all have questions about how to cope as we age. The PrimeTime Institute four or more hour-and-a-half programs per month offering information on topics important to the active 50+ population. A vast range of topics are presented by local specialists and professionals such as authors, doctors, lawyers, college professors, artists, and area personalities.

Arranged by a cadre of volunteers, the programs keep the 50+ participants informed, enlightened and entertained. Member suggestions for programs are encouraged as our contacts grow out through the community. Our intent is to keep our members active, healthy, and participating in lifelong learning in a low cost, sociable environment of their peers.
