Senior centers serve as a gateway to the nation’s aging network—connecting older adults to vital community services that can help them stay healthy and independent. Senior centers are designated focal points for delivery of OAA services—allowing older adults to access multiple services in one place. SeniorAge offers services through 36 senior centers covering 17 counties in southwest Missouri. Our senior centers offer a wide variety of programs and services, including meal and nutrition programs; information and assistance; health, fitness, and wellness programs; access to transportation services; public benefits counseling; volunteer and civic engagement opportunities; social and recreational activities; educational and arts programs and much more.
A little help and support goes a long way in helping a senior stay independent and in their own homes. Whether you live alone, with family or friends, or in a retirement community, you may receive in-home services. Some individuals may feel more at ease with an emergency pendant or the installation of grab bars to increase safety. Others may need help with meals, bathing, or household chores. Whatever your needs, SeniorAge can help you identify and access the services that help you remain at home.
