Senior Center

kenai senior servicesHelping people to age with dignity

 

We strive to serve as a community focal point for senior services where adults 60+ come together for fellowship and program participation, to engage in opportunities for dignity and personal growth, to improve and enrich their quality of life, to support the needs of older individuals, to enhance their independence and to broaden their involvement within the community.

 

The philosophy of the senior center is based on the premise that aging is a normal developmental process; that human beings need peers with whom they can interact and who are available as a source of encouragement and support; and that senior adults have the right to voice in determining matters in which they have a vital interest.

 

The City of Kenai has furnished a wide variety of services to the elderly on the Central Peninsula since September 1971. Through a grant from the Department of Senior and Disabilities Services the Kenai Senior Center continues to provide support services to their targeted population of individuals 60 years of age and older.

Aging is a normal developmental process

 

The philosophy of the senior center is to provide an atmosphere where seniors interact with their peers, where people are a source of encouragement and support.  The senior Center provides advocacy and gives the individual senior age 60 years an older an opportunity to stay active while living within the their own community.
