SENIOR SERVICES

SENIOR CENTER / SOCIAL DAY PROGRAM

The Salvation Army’s Senior Center and Social Day Program provide opportunities for socialization and wellness that support independence for our community’s seniors. The Senior Center provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere that fosters a sense of community.

Nutritionally balanced breakfasts and hot lunches are available for all participants. Seniors have the choice to participate in many programs, including computer instruction, yoga, exercise and strength training, falls prevention, diabetic support, health monitoring and education, ceramics and crafts, music, spiritual programs and personal enrichment. Support is provided for full participation by frail elderly who are at risk for institutionalization and/or nursing home care. Available services include transportation, referral to case management services and other community resources, assistance on outings and trips and caregiver support/assistance. A part time Nurse LPN is on the Senior Center staff.

Care Case Managers provide information and referral services plus case assistance and advocacy to seniors 60 years or older who are residing in Onondaga County, as well as for their families/caregivers.

The program provides general assistance with many issues faced by seniors, including Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Food Stamps, prescription drugs, transportation, health services and home care, companion care, home repairs and weatherization, tax issues, mental health and protective services.
