Greater Seattle Area Senior Centers

<< Go back to Resource Guide home

There are roughly 11,500 senior centers in the U.S., and many of them are completely changing and updating themselves, from their facilities to the services they offer to the names they bear. No more bingo – bring on the senior speed-dating, wine-tasting and sushi-making classes. To appeal to baby boomers, it appears, a total makeover is required!

For decades, senior centers – some privately owned and some operated by the communities where they’re located – have provided a social and recreational outlet for older adults who might otherwise not have a place where they feel they belong. But in recent years, Americans have begun to display a growing tendency to isolate themselves, in the process losing a sense of community and suffering a decline in health and happiness. This isolation is especially hard on seniors: recent research has linked loneliness among the elderly to a host of problems including depression, even dementia. One solution to get seniors involved is to re-cast the traditional “senior center” into a more modern, less old-fashioned model, and make it the kind of place aging boomers will seek out.
