Centers

Local senior centers provide a place to meet up with old friends, make new ones, or learn something new. The Mifflin-Juniata Area Agency on Aging supports four senior centers, two located in Mifflin County and two in Juniata County. Each center offers opportunities for nutritious meals, social activities, and a range of programs.

  • Four Seasons Senior Community Center – Mifflintown
  • Lewistown Senior Community Center
  • McAlisterville Senior Community Center
  • Milroy Senior Community Center


Eligibility

  • Age 60 or older and spouses, regardless of age
  • Participant needs to be able to manage his/her own activities of daily living, i.e. toileting, dressing, self-administration of medications and eating (or with a personal care attendant)


Activities/Programs

The senior centers provide a wide variety of fun, informative, and engaging programs for people with diverse interests.  Center programming includes exercise sessions, cards and games, health screenings, educational discussions, creative arts, volunteer opportunities, occasional trips, and other special events which are unique to each individual center.  People attending the centers may attend as frequently or as infrequently as they want. There is no minimum attendance requirement for senior centers.

Hot Lunchtime Meal

The senior centers also provide hot nutritious meals. While walk-ins are always welcome, we encourage you to guarantee your meal by making a reservation. Contact the center manager at your local senior center to make a reservation.  A donation of $1.00 is requested for the noon-meal, but is not required.  Contributions help to support the agency’s services. Lunch menus are now available for July.

Transportation

If needed, transportation to attend the centers is available through Call-A-Ride Services (CARS).  Transportation to and from the center is provided free of charge for center participants, but donations are appreciated to help cover the cost of transportation.

To arrange for transportation to a senior center, call the CARS office at 717-242-CARS or sign up on the transportation sheet provided at each senior center.
