Services for the Aged
The primary objective of the Senior Center program is to serve as an advocate for persons
sixty (60) years old and older by helping them to achieve a better quality of life.
The Senior Center serves as a focal point on Aging Programs and activities that are designed to meet the mental, emotional, social and physical needs of older adults. This group also exists to enhance senior citizens dignity, support their independence and encourage their involvement in and with the community.
