Seniors Empowered to Age Well During National Senior Center Month

Local Active Living Centers deliver vital connections for older adults

Today’s senior centers are delivering vital connections to help all older adults age well. From financial planning workshops to cooking classes and dances to technology classes, our Active Living Centers represent a community nexus where seniors find friendship, meaning, and purpose.

During the pandemic, the centers pivoted to continue providing home-delivered meals while keeping in touch with participants through regular phone calls and virtual offerings. September is National Senior Center Month, and we're celebrating these shared experiences that deliver vital connections to aging well for older adults.

“Betty Friedan said, ‘Aging is not “lost youth” but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” Our members are finding opportunity and strength every day,” said Nora Demusz, Active Living Center Administrator. “They demand the opportunity to continue connecting. We serve them and this community the best we can with fun and engaging programs, while also providing practical tools and resources to help them stay healthy and independent.” 

Senior Center Month emphasizes the tremendous potential that senior centers deliver in their communities, including programming that empowers older adults to holistically age well and strengthen mind, body, spirit, and community connections.    

Local Active Living Centers also provide health screenings and education, nutritious meals, volunteer opportunities and more. To learn more about our Active Living Centers and the opportunities they offer, please call 1-800-982-4346.
