Regional Senior Center

DFSS Senior Centers serve as local hubs that connect seniors to social, economic, and educational resources that enhance the quality of their lives. Most importantly, they serve as a vibrant social community, a place for friendship, and a remedy for loneliness or isolation.  Major activities include: life enrichment classes, special events, trips and outings, and recreational activities. The centers serve a hot lunch daily, as part of the department's Golden Diners Program. A comprehensive fitness and wellness program is also offered utilizing nationally recognized evidence-based practices. In addition, community-based Information & Assistance resources are available that can link older adults and their caregivers to benefits and services.
