We believe every senior deserves to be independent, safe, and to live with dignity.
For over 50 years, Senior Services has helped community seniors maintain physical, emotional, and social wellness, thus promoting senior independence. This is achieved through a comprehensive program which combines therapeutic recreation, socialization, physical and mental stimulation, and health education to reinforce dignity and self-worth.
Senior Services' four Club 55 locations offer various activities, including:
Fitness programs: yoga; tai chi provided by Tom Scott of Hero Martial Arts
Card games: Bridge, Pinochle, Canasta, Skip-Bo, Kings in the Corner, Cribbage
Needleworkers activities: Crocheting, knitting, and on-site craft shows
Wii Bowling tournaments
Field trips to local parks, shopping centers, casinos, and more
All of Senior Services' programs are offered at little-to-no charge, thanks in part to the generous support of community agencies,and proceeds from The Country Store.
For more information, or to volunteer, email Diana King, Program Manager, or call 815-758-8616.
