Senior Programs
Almost one-fourth of Montgomery County's population is seniors. Many of them still work, many are very active, and many are in great health. That's why we have so many terrific activities for those aged 55-and-above. Gilded years? Phooey. Prime years.

Senior Program Information
Active Adult Activities Abound In Montgomery County!

There are many program opportunities for residents 55 and over. The Department offers everything from Arts & Humanities to Zumba classes and a plethora of activities in between. Services like Blood Pressure Screenings and Flu Shots are offered at numerous sites throughout the county. We hope this information will help guide you to find senior services to fit your needs and have a fulfilling life through recreation.

Six Senior Centers and thirteen 55+ Active Adult Programs

What is the difference between a Multiservice Senior Center and a 55+ Active Adult Program? Senior Centers meet 5 or 6 days a week, typically have many rooms to offer programs in and have more staff to service the varied programs. An Active Adult Program meets in a Community Center, two days per week, has fewer rooms available for activities and is staffed by a program director and a nutrition manager. Some programs offer a lunch program and limited curb-to-curb transportation. Call the individual center or program directly for more information.
