Senior Centers

What are senior centers?

Senior centers provide a safe and helpful setting for older people to be together. They often offer lectures, day trips and a variety of hobby and exercise programs. Many serve hot meals, and some provide home-delivered meals.

Senior centers often can help individuals with taxes, health, housing and other concerns. Some senior centers transport people to and from the site.
