The Art of Aging: Senior Centers
PHILADELPHIA - January 9, 2014 (WPVI) -- Lisa Thomas-Laury reports on the role of senior centers in her weekly series on the "Art of Aging."
There are Senior Centers and satellite meal centers in every neighborhood in Philadelphia, largely funded by the Pennsylvania Lottery. They are great places to meet new people and stay active!
Diane Brown, Health Promotion Consultant says, " "We think of it as the original social network, a place where you can go and have fun, meet other people.
Senior centers can also help with legal questions and connect older adults to other social services.
They can be accessed through SEPTA's shared ride program in Philadelphia.
Holly Lange, President & CEO, Philadelphia Corporation for Aging said, "Seniors are provided with the opportunity for socialization, computer classes, exercise classes, education, health promotion, and a hot lunch every day 5 days a week for the whole year."
For information on your nearest senior center or for any questions relevant to older Pennsylvanians, call the PCA help line, 215-765-9040.
