Senior Services

Seniors never had it so good!

The Seniors program in San Jose is one of fun and fellowship. In addition to the daily lunch, seniors have great opportunities to participate in scheduled trips, costume parties, bingo, games, Zumba, reading and television. The Senior Center is now accepting donations of of CDs, videos and books.Volunteers are needed to help with parties, shopping and other activities.

Activities

  • Transportation is provided to a local store. Our bus driver picks them up from our Senior Center and takes them to the store where they shop for about one hour. Afterwards, they are taken to the Senior Center for lunch.
  • In addition, about 50-60 Brown Bags (groceries) are handed out each week.
  • Seniors exercise every Monday morning with a Zumba trainer.
  • Seniors play bingo on Tuesdays and Fridays. They can win food items, plants, and flowers.
  • Seniors take trips to places such as San Juan Bautista, Sausalito, Monterey, San Francisco Wharf, Half Moon Bay, etc.
  • Holidays are filled with special activities, like the short program included with lunch for Mother's Day, the BBQ on Father's Day, birthday recognition, a Halloween costume party, and Thanksgiving Day lunch.
  • The Center would like to expand and offer drawing, dance/exercise and crafts classes.
