Senior Centers, located in each county, are the building blocks upon which other services to the elderly begin. As the focal point for services, they provide a congregate meeting place for meals, recreation, health screenings and testing and educational programs.

Sunshine and Smiles
Sunshine & Smiles is an intergenerational play group. The group, facilitated by a volunteer, allows parents and their typically pre-school age children and nursing home residents to connect and interact. The group meets once a month and benefits all involved. As one resident at Rosewalk Village said, “This is the best day I’ve ever had.” These visits are especially meaningful to those residents whose family members are not able to visit very often. Children who don’t live near their grandparents or great-grandparents also benefit by getting to spend time with an older generation.
