If you have the preconception that senior centers are not for you, pay a visit to your local center and judge for yourself! Not only are senior centers a home away from home for many older New Yorkers, they offer an exciting variety of activities. Chances are, whatever’s on the agenda on any particular day, the center will be bustling. What’s more, should you need information about senior benefits or services for seniors in your community, the center’s friendly staff will be glad to help you. And if you just want to relax with good friends over a game of cards or cup of coffee, well, pull up a chair! Being with friends is the best part of attending a center!
