Seniors

The Fay J. Lindner Senior Services Center is your home for educational and interactive programs for seniors 60+ with fitness and cultural programs lectures, social groups and volunteer opportunities.

In addition, our center provides a safety net if and when a senior needs more care and support. Our Specialized Senior Services department offers just that — more TLC to help our seniors and their families who are frail or suffering from other chronic conditions.
