I volunteered here over Spring break and I had a great experience with the members and staff at Claymore. I never thought working with seniors could be so rewarding. It's like having 100 Grandmoms and Grandpops! If all senior centers are like this one, maybe growing old won't be so bad!

Hello, Everyone. I am the REAL Betty Farkus. Jack Rumsfeld and I are pleased to announce that we are getting married and moving to Del Boca Vista, FL. We would like to thank the staff and members at Claymore Senior Center for the beautiful going away party! And a special thanks to Catherine T. and Joe_11. Without them, nobody would have ever heard of this wonderful website.

This is one of my first reviews on-line. I just wanted to thank the members and staff at Claymore Senior Center for making my experience there so enjoyable. It was suggested to me by a friend that I give Claymore a try and wasn't disappointed. With the recent loss of my wife, it has been hard to get back into things. Claymore has been a nice diversion for me...especially the Wii bowling on Thursdays. Thank you again!

The Direcor, Donna, is incompetent and lacks the education and experience to be in the posiiton she is in. She brings all her personal problems to work and is ALWAY on the phone regarding them. You cannot speak with her. She also seems "out of sorts" at times. Makes me wonder what problems there might be. I left, too much drama and gossip. The Board should replace her. The centers and seniors deserve better, and not a bunch of dysfunctional craziness from Donna.

This place has potential, but they need to replace the Director, Donna. I was a former member there, and got tired of the gossip, drama, and just plain crazy atmosphere that seems to come from the Director, Donna. It appeared to me, and this is my opinion, that she was more concerned with her personal affairs than with the Center. The staff is nice, but high turnover due to difficulty working with Donna. Hopefully, the Board will take notice and make some much needed changes. I am currently happy at Mid-County, but would return if they replaced the current Director.

Don`t waste your time at Claymore, Rude Director

I toured the Claymore Senior center as I was interested in some of the programs they had to offer. I could not have been more disappointed. I found the Director, I think her name was Donna, rude and completely disinterested in myself as a prospective member. If she is going to deal with the public, she really should work on her people skills. Also I thought this was an active Senior Center not a nursing home.It seems they treat the members like small children. Again, I mainly interacted with the Director. The cleanliness of the facility also left a lot to be desired. Needless to say this one is off my list, mainly becuase of the rudeness of the Director Her rudeness, incompetence, and indifference were really disturbing.
She is NOT a very nice person

Pros: None

Cons: Rude Director, Dirty Facility, Limited Staff, Nursing Home Atmosphere
