Mission: The mission of the Grand Forks Senior Center is to assist older adults to remain healthy and independent in their homes. We are committed to providing quality and cost efficient programs and services for older adults through a professional, caring and trustworthy staff. From activities to keep the mind sharp, nutritious meals to keep the body healthy and social interactions to remain emotionally strong, the Grand Forks Senior Center is the connection for older adults to live on the Brighter Side of Sixty.
Results: In 2011 alone, the Grand Forks Senior Center prepared and served more than 102,000 healthy nutritious meals, provided foot care to 958 clients, and met with nearly 1,300 clients to help them navigate paperwork for things such as Medicare Part D, property tax credits, rent rebates, and transportation assistance. But perhaps most important is the opportunity for socializing at the Senior Center, which is especially valued by seniors who do not have family nearby.
