Knoxville Senior Center
Aging isn't what it used to be and neither are today's senior centers. With a growing focus on wellness, life-time learning, and volunteerism, senior centers are modernizing to meet new needs. So, when it comes to finding tools for staying healthy and involved or finding information about benefits, senior centers are the place to start. This September, during National Senior Center Month, the Knoxville Senior Center invites the community to take part in its programs and to find out more about services.
Knoxville Senior Center is highlighting this year's theme Celebrate LIFE at your Senior Center. The theme embraces positive, active aging and takes a holistic approach to senior center wellness. A host of special activities are planned, including an open house from 5-8:00 p.m. on September 15th at the Knoxville Senior Center. In one evening all programming, classes, activities and services will be showcased.
"Older adults are a dynamic generation, who want the opportunity to share their diverse skills and talents," said Senior Nutrition Director Dawn Allspach-Kline. We provide an outlet for them to learn and commune with their contemporaries, as well as offer tools, resources, and opportunities to help them manage their health and finances to stay independent.
Knoxville Senior Center was established in 1983 and offers innovative activities and programming, such as technology classes, lifelong learning art courses, massage therapy, Alzheimer's support groups, Medicap health hour, walking groups, exercise classes, wellness workshops, health screenings, benefits counseling, information and referral services, foot clinics, nutrition education, congregate meals, meals-on-wheels, volunteer placement, trips, potlucks, cards, and billiards.
