Senior Centers Have a Program for You

. June 1, 2015.

Senior centers serve as a gateway to the nation’s aging network—connecting older adults to vital community services that can help them stay healthy and independent.

More than 60% of senior centers are designated focal points for delivery of OAA services—allowing older adults to access multiple services in one place. 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.

For more information or to find a senior center near you contact www.ncoa.org or locally the Northwest Area Office on Aging at 419-382-0624 or www.areaofficeonaging.com/
