Senior Citizens Program

Senior Citizens Program

Services are available Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There is no cost to attend this program and we provide free transportation to and from the Center. The goals of the program are:

1) Provide a quality and affordable senior program for persons 55 years and older whose income level is deemed to be low, very low, or extremely low as per the HUD eligibility guidelines.

2) Participants are offered social and recreational activities and educational access to needed information concerning basic resources to enrich their quality of life, promote self-care, and reduce the amount of social isolation.

This year we are collaborating with two other senior centers in Amarillo in order to create a plan to identify ways to enhance services to adults 50+ in the community. 

With the assistance of the City of Amarillo, Panhandle Regional Planning Commission, Amarillo Area Foundation, Bivins Foundation, Amarillo College, and many more we are striving to create a model that all senior centers can follow. For more information: http://www.amarilloblueprint.org/.

In addition, this year the City of Amarillo held a proclamation that September be Senior Citizens Month in Amarillo due to the efforts of Amarillo Wesley Community Center, Hilltop Senior Citizens Association, and Amarillo Senior Citizens Association.

Activities include:

  • Field Trips
  • Pot Lucks
  • Weekly blood pressure checks
  • Sewing Club ( Quilting for the Homeless & Veterans/Bags of Love Projects)
  • Games (Dominoes, cards, billiards, bingo and much more.)
  • Exercise Activities

Assisted Living is a community organization that prioritizes helping those who are disabled and the elderly fully enjoy their healthy years and age gracefully. Our organization creates and publishes comprehensive, unbiased, free web-based resources. We have been featured on the Parkinson’s Foundation, US Department of Health and Human Services - Health Finder, Global Healthspan Policy Institute, and is referenced by many governmental agencies and organizations across the web.
