Bergen County Department of Human Services Division of Senior Services Aging and Disability Resource Connection Senior Activity Centers.
Proudly serving Bergen County’s seniors since 1976.
Something for Everyone!
Bergen County operates ten Senior Activity Centers that are open to all Bergen County residents 60 of age and older.
Each center is staffed with caring professionals able to offer information and assistance about the community services available to older adults.
Our centers offer comfortable and stimulating surroundings where you can come to socialize, participate in educational and wellness programs and share lunch with friends (Tai Chi has been shown to improve balance & help prevent falls).
Physical activity and exercise are so important for overall health and well being. Bergen County’s senior centers offer a variety of ways to stay active while having fun. Try your hand at line dancing, tap or belly dancing. Find a partner and brush up on your ballroom dance skills. There are computer classes for all levels.
There are exercise classes for all levels of fitness, from aerobics to walking programs to gentle chair exercise. Our tai chi and yoga classes are gentle but challenging. Zumba Gold combines the fun of dance with a great workout.
There are recreational and creative programs to accommodate individuals with varying interests, including:
*Group Painting Classes
*Arts & Crafts
*Dance Parties & Celebrations
*Book Clubs & Discussions
*Mall/Supermarket Shopping Trips
Keep you mind sharp with the educational opportunities you will find at the centers. Computer classes, ranging from beginner computing to exploring the internet are offered in some locations.
As Bergen County’s senior population becomes more diversified, ESL and citizenship classes are essential parts of our educational programming. Wellness workshops are offered periodically focusing on issues such as fall prevention, nutrition and management of chronic health problems. Speakers and seminars on current topics of interest are scheduled throughout the month. Not all activities are offered at all centers. Give them a call to find the center that’s right for you.
All of our centers serve a nutritious lunch Monday through Friday for a suggested donation of $1.25. Call for details.
