About Senior Centers
A senior center is different
than a senior
community. You visit a senior center in your neighborhood.
A senior community is a retirement community where you
live. These are totally two different things.
Who are Users of Senior Centers?
People who stay and age in place in their
own neighborhoods, even though we have heard many people
who move to a community located near a 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
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
