VENUE FOR SENIORS
Senior Center Henderson has been around for quite some time to cater the social needs of our senior citizens in Nevada. Many people are not familiar with senior centers. Senior centers are recognized venues where people aged 50 and above can gather for socialization and more. Around the country, many senior centers promote activities that encourage our senior citizens to take part in the activities that are done within the community without hesitation, shame or fear.
Senior Center Henderson is always ready to accept new members in our family. With our growing numbers of elderly from Nevada, we are sure that the community will thrive more with each others’ participation.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Senior Center Henderson has different programs available for its members. Our facility is equipped with different amenities to support these programs although some programs are designed for outdoors such as excursions. Each program depends on their interest, advocacy, hobbies and more. We make sure that all activities can be made possible no matter what the nature of the program is and doable for the elderly.
The volunteering program is just one of the many activities that are spearheaded by Senior Center Henderson NV. This program is divided into categories. Our members can do volunteer work on shelters, orphanages, clean-up drives and more. There is also a program that is sponsored by religious groups that can be participated by our members who are also part of the said religious organization. We also have programs that are dedicated to health and fitness such as; the sports club, fitness class, yoga circle and more. Other programs cater to people’s hobbies such as; the bi-weekly cookout, orchestra concert, and movie showing. These activities help our members get to know other people who might be enjoying the same interests as them and can create a certain bond that makes the community bigger and stronger.
Most of the activities happen daily, with the help of our passionate facilitators in the center. In some cases, establishments who hire senior people as employees often do job hunting festivals in our senior center. Senior Center Henderson is not only a place for wellness and socialization but also for opportunities.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR OUR SENIOR MEMBERS?
The senior citizens of the country are normally seen as vulnerable members of the population. Although true in some cases, we work to erase the prejudice that generalizes the elderly and show the world what elder people can do. We encourage our members to participate in our activities to liven up their daily life as well as to connect with other members who might feel the same way as them.
Our members build a community that they will surely remember for as long as they live. We aim to sustain this community by providing a safe and comfortable venue for everyone to meet, do what they are interested to do and what they can do best. Through this, we empower the elderly to be independent and live their lives the way they intend to.
