About Senior Centers
Baby Boomers do not
always like the name "Senior". So some other
names are beginning to be used like Active Adult Center
and Adult Activity Center. Some other suggestions are
Boomer Centers, Life Centers, Activity Center, Lifelong
Learning Centers and Communities Centers.
Who are Users of Senior Centers?
People who stay and age in place in their
own neighborhoods typically use senior centers, even though
we have heard many people who move to a senior community
located near a senior center, which sounds like the ideal
set up to us.
Age requirement varies by location, we have
seen many at age 50, many more 55 and 60, with the highest
age limit requirement being age 62.
You are sure to enjoy interacting with people
your age from your own neighborhood that use your local
senior center. Single, widowed, divorsed and married couples
all enjoy the use of their center. Some use and also voluteer
at their center.
Centers are not all alike, so get out and
visit the ones in your area or an area you are thinking
about moving to. No better time to visit now. You will be
welcomed and given a tour of the facilities and the activities
provided. Just do it, it is fun! Many first time visitors
sign up for an activity like the book club, walking club
or yoga or even just take a one time class on something
