Through a partnership with the Lackawanna County Area Agency on Aging, UNC operates four active older adult community centers to provide educational, nutritional, and social opportunities to individuals aged 55 and older. Transportation is available to and from all of the centers and lunch is served every weekday for a modest suggested donation. Each center offers different activities, which may include health and other educational programs, yoga, arts and crafts, bingo, line dancing, special events, and bus trips. A center manager oversees all activities and programs at each location, and participants who pay an optional annual membership fee of $10 are eligible to vote on center decisions as part of the site council.
This fall we’re kicking off a new program called Aging Well. Along with fitness classes at our centers, we’ll be offering the National Council on Aging’s Aging Mastery Program, Medicare 101, chronic pain management, cooking, and even a tap dancing class! Check out our brochure to see all the details!
