MEALS AT THE CENTER…..The lunches at the senior center are provided by City Fare everyday. They are well-balanced and nutritious meals. The cost of the meals are $2.00 daily for ages 60+ and $5.00 daily for those under age 60. This donation is expected upon arrival and can be given to one of the activity coordinators. If you have questions or concerns please see the senior center director, Jocelyn Dixon
TRANSPORTATION……..Transportation is provided to/from the senior center and most of our trips and activities outside of the center. If you are in need of transportation you must contact the senior center director to be added to the driver’s pickup list. Be aware that our driver picks up children for the ELC after he drops our seniors off, therefore, it is extremely important that you are ready and waiting for his arrival AND PLEASE CALL if you usually ride but will not be riding any particular day. If you do not have the driver’s number please ask.
INCLEMENT WEATHER……..With the changes in season coming so quickly, please watch the news in the mornings for closings. If the school districts are closed, the center will likely be closed as well. Also, bring a sweater or light jacket in case the temperature at the center is not warm enough for you.
SENIOR ROLL CALL…….This service is provided for FREE by New Castle County Police Department. Seniors will receive a pre-recorded “Well-Being Check” call as often as they choose (i.e. daily or weekly) to verify their well-being. If there is no answer after several attempts, an active well-being check will be initiated by contacting the seniors’ emergency contacts first, and if unable to reach them, a police officer will be dis-patched. For further information or to signup free of charge, call 302-395-8159.
SUGGESTION BOX…….Our suggestion box here at the center is conveniently located by the front door. We encourage and welcome you to add your ideas or suggestions for activities, games, trips or anything you feel will enhance your experience here at the senior center.
From beginner to expert, come out and show off your skills, learn how to play, or teach another fellow senior how to shoot pool.
This is a great way to keep your eye-hand coordination busy.
The pool table is available daily from 9am– 3pm.
Bring your own pool stick or use ours! The choice is yours!
** Billiards also counts towards the Senior Challenge**
