Senior Services Program


You’re not alone ...

For seniors, isolation is a big problem, affecting physical and emotional health. As people age, they require additional support to access services and recreation; without this, they may lose their ability to live independent and fulfilling lives.

Neighborhood House Aging Services and Senior Center is committed to keeping seniors connected to needed assistance and the community. We promote active and healthy lifestyles for seniors and assist them to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. We offer services to enhance life socially, physically, and intellectually, with an emphasis on promoting choice and dignity for elders.

Services for seniors include:

  • A wide range of educational, recreational, social, and health improvement activities at the Senior Center, all made available through an annual membership fee of $20 ($30/couples).
  • Monthly foot-care clinic, provided by a registered nurse.
  • A free half-hour visit with a Senior Law Project attorney.
  • Free help with Medicare choices and health care programs.
  • Access to the Senior Transportation Program, which provides shuttle service, shopping and recreational trips, medical and other transport services to seniors and people with disabilities.

Meet a Neighbor

Jennifer and EmmaSedighe “Mulok” Sherifi comes to the Senior Center four times a week on the Neighborhood House shuttle. She often takes the shopping shuttle to the grocery store to buy food as well. Mulok doesn’t drive, and in order to get out of her house and socialize with friends, she considers the Senior Center her lifeline. “I love everybody here,” she says. "It’s like my second home.” She is enrolled in the English as a Second Language class at the Center, where she is honing her English skills. She moved from her native Iran about 30 years ago, and now feels connected and supported at the Senior Center.
