Transportation is provided for seniors who live in the local area who desire to come to our center for lunch for a suggested contribution of $1.00 each way.
Volunteer opportunities provide service to The Senior Center. This offers leadership opportunities, meaningful work, a chance to learn new skills and a chance to brush up on old ones.
All of the programs provide a context for making friends, an essential element in maintaining health and independence. The isolation that many seniors experience when they retire or move from their friends and their support system to be nearer their children or when a spouse passes or when their own health begins to fail, can be debilitating. Strong networks and a social system are key elements to breaking through the isolation and generating connections prolongs independent living and well-being.
