At the Vernonia Senior Center, we have been committed to enhancing the wellbeing and independence of individuals aged 60 and above since 1967. Our mission is to provide a nurturing and engaging environment where seniors can thrive physically, socially, and emotionally. Through our comprehensive range of services and activities, we strive to empower older adults to live fulfilling lives.
Congregate Dining: We understand the importance of nutritious meals and the joy of communal dining. Our Senior Center offers congregate dining experiences on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at noon. Through our reservation-based system, seniors can enjoy delicious and balanced meals in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, fostering social connections and friendship.
Home-Delivered Meals: For those who are home-bound and unable to join us for congregate dining, we provide the convenience of home-delivered meals. Our dedicated team ensures that nutritious and flavorful meals are delivered directly to their doorstep, promoting their wellbeing and ensuring they receive proper nourishment.
Exercise Classes: We recognize the vital role physical activity plays in maintaining health and independence. That’s why we offer a diverse range of exercise classes tailored to the needs and abilities of older adults. These classes are designed to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and overall fitness, allowing seniors to remain active, agile, and independent.
Activities and Events: In addition to dining and exercise, our Senior Center hosts a variety of engaging activities throughout the week. From educational workshops to social gatherings, we aim to provide a vibrant and supportive community for seniors. Whether it’s card games, arts and crafts, or discussion groups, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and connect with like-minded individuals.
Community Outreach: We extend our services beyond the walls of the Senior Center by delivering food to home-bound individuals. Our dedicated team ensures that those who are unable to access our center can still receive nutritious meals, reducing isolation and promoting overall wellbeing.
Inclusivity and Support: Our Senior Center is dedicated to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for individuals from all walks of life. We prioritize respecting individual needs and promoting dignity, independence, and self-expression. Our compassionate staff is always available to provide guidance, support, and resources to seniors and their families, fostering a sense of community and belonging.
Come Join Us: If you or a loved one is over 60 and seeking to enhance wellbeing, independence, and social connections, we invite you to join us at our Senior Center. Experience the enriching activities, delightful meals, and supportive community that await you. Together, we can make your golden years truly golden.
Volunteer: Compassionate and dedicated individuals are needed for our meals delivery program and to assist at our thrift store, Bargains on Bridge Street.
