Taking You in New Directions!
Located at 128 Providence Street, the Worcester Senior Center is a bright, welcoming place for all seniors, their families and caregivers, elder service providers and the community at large. Approximately one mile from City Hall, the Center is on two bus routes and has ample on-site, free parking. There is a strong emphasis on health and wellness programming, in addition to fitness, intergenerational events, support groups, arts & crafts classes, multi-cultural programs, computer classes and various other educational and recreational activities. Lunch is provided every day, as well as light fare at the diner. In addition to scheduled programs, elders enjoy a spacious library, computer lab practice, games, art exhibits and landscaped grounds. They also come to the Senior Center for assistance with personal matters, obtaining information and support from the staff of Elder Affairs as well as partnering organizations providing such services as veterans' assistance, health insurance counseling, food stamps, tax return preparation, legal assistance and individual client advocacy. The Senior Scoop is a free monthly newsletter listing activities, menus and programs for the month.
The consistent growth and success of the Senior Center is a tribute to the needs it is meeting, as well as the creative partnerships developed with over 180 instructors and organizations that provide over 270 different programs! Leasing space to elder service providers generates income as well as enhances service delivery. Continual attention to diversity issues maintain a lively multi-cultural atmosphere in which thousands of seniors take charge of their health and thrive.
