Senior Services

Senior programs help the elderly in our community get the extra support they need while remaining independent. Offerings range from transportation services and case management; to our Senior Center at Clara Park’s Turner Hall (4835 Clara Street), providing meals, social and recreational opportunities, and wellness programs.

Senior Center

Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 a.m.–2 p.m., ages 60+ The City, in partnership with the Human Services Association (HSA) provides fun activities including live karaoke and dancing, educational classes, special events, health screenings, exercise programs, and volunteer opportunities.

Lunch Program

Mondays thru Fridays, 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. Join us for a delicious lunch. Suggested donation is $2.25 for anyone ages 60 years and up, or $4.50 for those underage. Monthly birthday celebrations are held on the last Friday of the month, as well as festivities to celebrate holidays throughout the year.

Meals on Wheels

The Home Delivered Meals (Meals on Wheels) program provides homebound seniors with a daily hot meal and a reassuring, friendly visit. HSA drivers are trained to observe any danger signs and report them back to the agency. For many seniors, a home-delivered meal increases their sense of independence and prevents premature institutionalization. Meal recipients also receive holiday gift baskets and other holiday treats.
