"Senior centers fulfill an important role in the lives of seniors. Three things that are important to seniors: family/friends, health, and community.
Our local senior centers provide social interaction which improves the mind; provides a support system where they feel connected; provides activities which keep them mentally alert; and prolongs the need for moving into an assisted living or nursing home facilities.
Bein around other people helps seniors keep a positive outlook on life. Seniors who have the strongest sense of purpose and responsibility are much less likely to become depressed. Centers are a place where they can have fun, relax, and share their stories with one another. It is an extension of family." - Merry Gabel
