Senior Services

Senior Centers

Established in 1984, the Senior Program provides leisure, recreational, social, and health-related activities for adults ages 45 and up with developmental disabilities. The program is designed specifically for adults looking for retirement alternatives to the world of work or active day programming. More specifically, it offers access to their communities and the opportunity to interact, socialize, and enjoy educational and recreational activities. In addition, the program — licensed by Community Care Licensing — makes it possible for seniors to continue to live in community housing as they age.

Year round, participants enjoy a 6-hour day filled with a wide range of services and activities, including:

  • Arts and crafts
  • Community outings to movies, museums, and lunch at local restaurants
  • Direct case management and assessments
  • Hobby clubs (gardening, art, music, cooking, etc.)
  • Community resource information and referrals
  • Exercise and health-related programming
  • Transportation to local community activities during program hours
