About the Senior Service Center
The mission of the Senior Service Center is to provide two thirds of Senior daily nutritional needs, improve their quality of life, and help preserve independent living for as long as possible. With a team of dedicated staff and volunteers, the program provides nutrition-centered services that link seniors to healthy meals, exercise, transportation, social activities, emotional support, and other services that meet each senior’s individual level of need.
The Senior Service Center also helps seniors stay active. Whether it is physical exercise, arts and crafts, or socialization, Senior Service Center staff work to ensure optimal outcomes are achieved mentally and physically.
Senior Center participants are served breakfast and lunch each day. Meals are prepared by NHA’s Nutrition Services program, and the menu is designed to provide seniors with healthy, nutritious meal options.
The suggested donation for meals at the Senior Service Center is $2.00 for breakfast and $3.00 for lunch. No senior will be denied meals because of inability to pay. Non-seniors who are visiting the center will be charged $5.00 per meal.
