THE BRONX - Bronx residents now have a new place where their loved ones can receive the care they need.

Renaissance Adult Day Services opened its doors Thursday on East 156th Street.

The center offers specialized therapy for senior citizens as well as 24-hour support. It also allows seniors to partake in recreational activities and pet therapy.

Seniors say centers such as Renaissance help the Bronx's elderly community.

This is Renaissance's second location in the borough. The other facility is located on Fordham Road.
