Research shows that older adults who participate in senior center programs can learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic disease and experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being.

Today’s senior centers are reinventing themselves to meet the needs and desires of the aging baby boom generation.  Boomers now constitute more than two-thirds of the 50+ population.  Senior centers are developing new programs and opportunities for this dynamic generation of older adults.

Senior centers offer a wide variety of programs and services including:

  • Meal and nutritional programs
  • Information and assistance
  • Health, fitness, and wellness programs
  • Volunteer and civic engagement opportunities
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Educational and arts programs
