Description:

Socialization, Recreation, Health & Fitness and Information and Referral are core Senior Center services. The Senior Center uses a Successful Aging Model and coordinates with Harvard Community Services Center and East End Neighborhood House as part of the Southeast Regional Successful Aging Collaborative. This collaborative seeks to assist older adults to remain independent in their communities.


The Senior Center opens its doors Monday through Friday at 9:00am where participants arrive via Murtis Taylor HSS transportation and various other means. A variety of social clubs bring participants together around specific interests. These include the Men’s Club, Women-on-the-Go, the Genealogy Club and the Coffee Club. The Senior Center is a gathering place that allows seniors to meet, greet and socialize. Transportation to and from the Center is available. Recreation is a big part of the activities. Participants play cards, computer games, board games and Nintendo Wii. Late mornings prior to lunch the seniors participate in guided exercise. Throughout the week, an Information and Referral Specialist is available to link seniors with resources, answer questions and advocate for community resources.
