Evolution of senior centers
The first senior center opened 59 years ago in New York City. There are now some 15,000 senior centers across the country, serving close to 10 million older adults annually. 

Services offered at senior centers
While senior centers typically provide nutrition, recreation, social and educational services, and comprehensive information and referrals, many centers are adding new programs such as fitness activities and Internet training to meet the needs and interests of the new generation of seniors. Some centers also offer case management programs, long-term care ombudsman services and operate adult day health care centers.

Senior centers serve as focal points in the community where a collaboration of agencies can provide services to their target populations in a single facility with staff and support systems that maximize the opportunity to assist the population to age successfully.


There are 13 senior centers located in Monroe County.
