SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging

Senior Centers

Wellness Programs

Research shows that older adults who participate in senior center programs can learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic disease and experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being.

SeniorAge Senior Centers are reinventing themselves to meet the needs and desires of the aging baby boom generation. Boomers now constitute more than two-thirds of the 50+ population. We continue to develop new programs and opportunities for this dynamic generation of older adults.

 

Evidence-Based Programs

Evidence-based programs work! Solid research studies have proof that these programs promote documented health benefits and prevent disease or injury among older adults. Seniors who participate in these evidence based programs have a better quality of life - better long-term health and fewer falls. SeniorAge offers a variety of evidence-based wellness programs throughout our 17-county service area.
