View our Senior Activity Center Map >

The goal of the Senior Center is to help senior Arkansans remain healthy, active, independent, and contributing members of the community as long as possible. There are evidence-based health and wellness programs to help seniors age successfully. People are transported either in groups or individually as the need arises. Transportation is provided to and from the center, also for medical and shopping needs. Home Delivered Meals are delivered to the homes of frail or disabled elderly persons who are unable to go to the senior center and who cannot prepare nutritious meals for themselves. Congregate hot, nutritious meals are served at the centers daily. Nutrition education programs are regularly scheduled as an integral part of the service.
