The Copperas Cove Senior Activity Center is dedicated to serving the seniors in this area with enrichment programs that provide social interaction, encourage a healthy lifestyle, and promote wellness. Seniors come to the center to enjoy recreational activities while receiving healthy snacks and nourishment. Our goal is to reach the senior population in and around the Copperas Cove area with a place that is welcoming to all. The nourishment programs help this age group battle the rising costs of eating healthy by providing food at a minimal cost. This encourages seniors to get out of their house and come to the center, not only for nourishment, but also for programs that will enrich their quality of life and personal health and for socializing with others in their age group. Our goal is to improve the overall quality of life for local seniors.
At the senior center, we try to provide a variety of different activities. Our nourishment programs include lunch twice a week, a Big Breakfast once a month, and a Potluck monthly (the center provides the main dish and the seniors provide the sides). Our Fitness and Health programs included Health checks twice a month, fitness/exercise classes three times a week, and foot clinics once a month. Recreational activities include Bingo on Tuesday and Friday each week, Crochet/Knit group on Monday, card and dominos games all five days, and scheduled time for fellowship once a week. We offer free haircuts monthly. We’ve started “Dining with Friends”; we visit local restaurants monthly to encourage activity, good food and conversation. The seniors that currently attend our activities thoroughly enjoy participating and we are always looking for ways to reach more seniors.
