Elderly Services


Elderly Services


Each year thousands of older adults are served by The Salvation Army. In corps community centers throughout the nation, older adults gather to share interests, develop new skills and enjoy the company of their peers. The Salvation Army meets their needs in many ways.


Educational classes, day care, hot-lunch programs and pre-retirement seminars are just a few of the programs the Army offers. Each center provides a variety of activities to meet diverse needs. Here, in an atmosphere of understanding and respect, new friendships are formed and talents discovered.

Army Residences

The Salvation Army operates several residential facilities for older adults. Here older people can live in an atmosphere of love, acceptance and encouragement. There are also several adult day-care service centers for those seniors who need specialized services.
