Recreation and Community Centres
Being engaged and active is important at any age, and especially so after retirement. In addition, social contact and friendships reduce the isolation felt by many seniors. Through participation in activities and events, their lives retain meaning and value; seniors have a lifetime of knowledge to contribute to their communities.
Most seniors are already active in their communities after a lifetime of involvement.  However, as their needs change some activities may become more difficult or less accessible.
