Posted on Thursday, August 16, 2018 at 3:43pm

Today’s senior centers are a vibrant, action-packed combination of life engagement, cognitive and physical stimulation, and learning and doing what they can about avoiding disease and disability. During National Senior Center Month, the Madison Senior Center is celebrating these shared experiences that build momentum in the lives of everyone around them.

From financial planning workshops to cooking classes and dances to technology classes, the Madison Senior Center is a community nexus where seniors find friendship, meaning, and purpose. To share the power of these connections “Eleanor Roosevelt said, ‘The purpose of life is to live it,’ and our members are doing that every day.”

Today’s seniors demand the opportunity to learn new skills, engage new people, and share their wisdom and knowledge. We serve them and this community the best we can with fun and engaging programs, while also providing practical tools and resources to help them stay healthy and independent.”

This year’s national theme, Senior Centers: Building Momentum, emphasizes the personal growth and momentum senior centers bring to their communities, including programming that empowers older adults to learn, give, and connect.
