What do you look forward to in 2023? Did you make any New Year’s resolutions?

Whatever your wish is for the New Year, the West Philadelphia Senior Community Center, located at 1016 N. 41st Street, is here to help. If you live in West Philadelphia or the surrounding area,and are age 50 or better, we invite you to come in and explore all the Center has to offer.

Make New Friends, Play, and Create More

Want to make new friends in 2023? Join us weekdays for a warm, nutritious lunch and engaging conversations. You’ll meet new people and hopefully make a new friend.

Hang around for BINGO, a game of cards or your favorite board game. Try a fun class like line dancing or something creative like working with clay or sewing.

If getting out and going on trips is important to you, come on one of our excursions. Sign up for a 5-night cruise in Canada.

Not quite what you had in mind? The Center also offers trips to concerts, musicals, dance productions, plays, museums, and other attractions.

A Healthier You

Of course, if you’re joining millions of others who set goals to become healthier, there are lots of options at the Center to support you:

  1. Learn from a nutritionist about healthy food choices, portion control, and options for cooking to reduce things like fat, salt and sugar content without sacrificing taste.
  2. Take advantage of the Center’s exercise room, equipped with strength-building and aerobic exercise equipment.
  3. Sign up for one of several exercise classes, like creative movement, chair yoga, or enhanced fitness.
  4. Enroll in the health, fitness, and diabetes forums.
  5. Take advantage of special health screenings and medical services when available.

Successful Aging

Ever wonder how some people seem to age so well? If successful aging is your goal, one of their secrets is that they give joyously to others and receive from others gratefully.

The Center can connect you to volunteer opportunities where you can give your time and talents. There are many options at the Center and in the community. You can also make a donation to support programs and services at the Center.

If you personally need help, we have resources that might help. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and support from local partners, the Center is able to provide limited aid to those in need.

Above all else, spend more time with the ones you love. Nothing else is better for your soul.

Have a Joyful, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year
