Program areas at The Center / Senior Center Inc

Recreation/social wellness - center participants connect with others for social support, emotional wellness, and fun. 795 individuals participated 12,038 times in recreation/social wellness programming. Offered six days a week, recreation programs combat social isolation, which is linked to poor health outcomes that include depression, high blood pressure, cognitive decline, and an increased likelihood of needing long-term care. Additionally, these programs are led by center volunteers, which provides leaders with all the health benefits of volunteering.

Volunteer opportunities - not only does research show an impressive relationship between volunteering and good health, it suggests that the physical and mental benefits are greater for people 65 and older. 615 center volunteers contributed 61,700 hours of service at the center and at 65 nonprofits throughout our community. According to the Virginia office on volunteerism and community services, the economic impact of these volunteer service hours equates to over 1.6 million. Clinical studies show that seniors who volunteer are happier, have an increased sense of well-being, enjoy broader social networks, and live longer. With limited paid staffing, volunteers provide much of the labor required to run the center, allowing us to keep the costs of programs and services low. These volunteers are also changing the way people think about older adults-using their talents and skills in myriad ways to better the community, seniors show they are active, involved, and ...

Fitness/physical wellness - the center offered over 40 recurring high quality, senior-appropriate, fitness and physical wellness programs designed to improve or maintain the physical health of community participants so they can remain independent and enjoy a better quality of life. 648 individuals participated 10,670 times in fitness and physical wellness programs, which are created to be affordable, meet a wide range of ability levels, and preserve or increase functional fitness. Additionally, they help delay, decrease, or avoid chronic diseases-the leading cause of death and disability in the u.s. In a survey conducted after a wellness seminar held during the year 100% of participants reported that the workshop exceeded their expectations and that they learned new information that encouraged them to live healthier lives.
