Alexander County Senior Center

Social Recreation

Social interaction with one's peers also plays an important role in motivation to "do". Trips (we do a variety of day trips including shopping trips and dining out opportunities, and entertainment trips), card & board games, Wii bowling, bingo, dances, birthday lunches, movies, music and special events give a variety of opportunities to just have fun.

  • Information and Case Assistance is available in the Center
    There is a specially-trained staff person available to provide this service along with a computer data base of resources for such things as nutrition, transportation, employment, in-home services, adult day care, housing, health care providers, veteran's services and organizations, and volunteer opportunities, to name a few.
  • SHIIP Senior Health Insurance Information Program
    Medicare and health insurance counseling is available from trained volunteers.
  • Tax Aide
    Income Tax preparation is provided by AARP Tax Aide Counselors each year, during tax season.
  • Legal Aide
    Legal Aid of NC provides their services twice a year (typically in July and August based on funding). Their attorney will provide simple wills, power of attorney, living will, and health care power of attorney...all at no charge.
