What to Expect:
Services Offered at All Senior Centers

Transportation - The area's Senior Centers offer transportation services to seniors, operating wheelchair-accessible vans which travel on scheduled routes. Transportation is available for many types of activities, including medical appointments, shopping, personal errands, and even group trips to social and entertainment events.

Socialization - Our Senior Centers are enthusiastic about providing a wide variety of socialization opportunities for participants. Life should be fun, and we strive to make it so! During regular hours of operation, choices of activities usually include table games, billiards, computer classes, exercise classes, music events, public speakers, and more. Each Center is equipped with gym and exercise gear, including treadmills, stationary bikes, and weight lifting equipment. Group socialization is encouraged, but if a participant prefers a quiet place to read or chat with friends, the opportunities and space are also available.

Congregate Meals - The most important meal of the day may well be the one you enjoy with friends! Each weekday at lunchtime, between 11:30 and 12:30, our Senior Centers serve hot, nutritious meals.

Meals on Wheels - One of our most important services is the Meals on Wheels Program, operated by this area's Senior Centers. Each day, Monday through Friday, hot meals are delivered to the area's homebound elderly, and frozen meals ready for microwaving are delivered for weekends and holidays. The meals are cooked fresh daily, and are nutritionally planned and balanced.
