The New Senior Center
Local Senior Centers working with AgeSmart are reinventing their programs to help modernized their services. AgeSmart offered Innovation Grants to help centers re-develop their programs to better meet the needs of today’s older adults. The Bond County Senior Center, Clinton County Collaborative, Millstadt Senior Services, Seasoned Circle Café run by Lessie Bates, the Northeastern Randolph County Senior Center and Senior Services Plus (SSP) all were awarded Innovation Grants. Great Ideas emerged from the grants such as the WOW (WithOut Walls) concept. SSP plans to take the senior center on the road in their W.O.W. van. Keep a look out for new innovations in your neighborhood!
