Mobile Services for Seniors
Our Mobile Services for Seniors is an extension of our services offered at our senior center that provide opportunities for local seniors to meet other seniors in the area, become more informed on health issues and learn about resources available to seniors in the community. Our goal is to help seniors avoid isolation which is dangerous for their health.
“Harvard School of Public Health studies have found that seniors who are less social are more likely to suffer from memory loss and that socializing is as beneficial for their health as exercise. Many of the seniors we serve are widowed, separated/divorced or single – meaning that most live alone, which greatly impacts the factors of isolation.” – Barbara Cage, program manager
