No one should ever grow old alone.

Every year, older adults are welcomed with open arms at Salvation Army Corps Community Centers across the country.

Dementia affects one in seven people over the age of 71.

Recent studies show that consistent human contact and interaction can reduce dementia and depression.

The Salvation Army showers senior citizens with love and serves them with respect.

Rather than simply allowing these wonderful men and women - who are so often the most vulnerable members of our communities - to fend for themselves against loneliness and depression, we organize community meals, offer joyful activities, visit the homebound and even provide affordable residential facilities for seniors.

We embrace senior citizens. Every day, The Salvation Army serves seniors through a variety of programs.

During the summer, all of our Senior Nutrition Dining Centers are designated Cool Zones, places neighbors can come to stay cool on those hot summer days. There is no charge for the meals, but a donation of up to $4.00 is suggested. Come. Partake. Join our fellowship!

Community
Every Salvation Army Corps Community Center reaches out to the senior citizens in their community differently to meet their specific needs. Through localized programs, older adults can gather together to share interests, develop new skills and enjoy the company of their peers.

Activities
Engaging the minds and bodies of seniors helps keep them feeling young, active and happy. At The Salvation Army, they can enjoy educational classes, kindle friendships over lunch, relive their youth with dances, take pre-retirement seminars and countless other activities.

Residences
The Salvation Army operates several residential facilities for older adults, providing not only living quarters, but also an atmosphere of love, acceptance and encouragement.

Adult Day Care Centers
Mental and physical disabilities can take a toll on older adults, as well as their spouses and providers. Knowing this, The Salvation Army provides adult day care programs where those who are unable to take care of themselves can enjoy activities and friendships, while their providers are given the opportunity to take care of other life matters for a few hours.
