I have recently been a Senior Companion for the CSI Dept of Aging until the program was recently terminated due to lack of funds. I always took my senior companions to the TF senior center to eat, and they all loved it. Not only the food, but the fellowship. I highly recommend this organization.

I go to the Senior Center in Twin Falls for their lunch oftentimes even though I live in Buhl which is about 18 miles away. It is always good to be with others my age and the food is plentiful!

My parents started attending this great center three years ago. The manager, Jeannette, should write a book for other senior centers on how to do more with little. I can attest that the quality of meals surpasses what I have seen at Puget Sound senior centers. It seems to be an exemplary model facility given the restricted resources at their disposal.

I have been involved with Twin Falls Senior center since 2012 and I have watched how it has improved through the years and I believe it can attributed to Jeanette Roe the Director she puts the Senior first and her employees.

It is the place to go for Seniors They have a great lunch menu and easy to meet people. If you have a problem, Jeanette try's to help any way she can.

I have had the privilege of working with Jeannette and her crew for the past 6 years. We enjoy the facility on a regular basis - we have a weekly bridge game as well as an annual benefit for the Alzheimers Assn -- "The Longest Day" of bridge. Jeanette oversees the warm/comfortable gathering place - food, cleanliness, interesting activities, entertainment. And in her "SPARE TIME" writes grants for additional funding. Thank you Jeanette and staff for always making us feel welcome.

We go to the Senior Center in Twin Falls, Idaho to eat & fellowship with others. It is a very enjoyable place to go. There are also many informative speakers that come to talk to the seniors weekly which helps us in our daily lives

We had my dad’s funeral here as well as my Uncles. It was a great alternative to a funeral home. The staff are wonderful to work with. They will do as much or as little as you want. Including catering a meal or providing snacks. I would highly recommend this place for an event.

This is a incredible resource for our city. The meals are incredible and the atmosphere is welcoming to all. As the coordinator for the Office of Emergency Management for our county. The center is designated as a shelter for seniors and the administrator is so proactive in all areas of preparedness, planning, mitigation and recovery. First rate, and one of the best, Twin Falls Senior Citizen Center is one of the best nonprofit in the state.

The Twin Falls Senior Center fills a huge need in our community. It is more than just feeding some of our most vulnerable citizens. Recently I have had the opportunity to help serve breakfast at their monthly fundraising. I was there with the Twin Falls City Youth Council and my family. The Senior Center reaches out to the entire community, being actively involved with the Chamber of Commerce. It is critical in today’s society to network and share resources. Jeanette and her team are incredible. They can take a little and make it stretch so far.

This wonderful senior center serves my mom and dad a Home Delivered Meal Monday - Friday. Mom has Alzheimer's disease and dad is at end stage COPD. A few months ago dad was outside and attempted to lift a jug of water. He then fell to the ground with a broken back from this action. He was outside for over 45 minutes when the Twin Falls Senior Federation Home Delivered Meal volunteer driver drove up and got him help. I will forever be grateful. My parents enjoy the wonderful meal they receive daily; this has helped them maintain independence in their own homes. Thanks again Twin Falls Senior Federation for all you do!
