Keeps older adults engaged and active
Provides foot care
Supports aging at home
Fills the Grand Forks Senior Center with laughter and conversation
“I don’t know what I would do without the Grand Forks Senior Center.” These are words we have heard spoken many times by numerous individuals. Sometimes the people saying this are Grand Forks Senior Center (GFSC) regulars who spend a fair amount of time here participating in our activity program and socializing with other older adults at the GFSC. Other times we have heard these words spoken by family members who have utilized our services as a way to help their mom/dad/neighbor/friend as they age. We also have heard Meals on Wheels clients gratefully express this same sentiment as hot meals are delivered to their homes by friendly faces. You are supporting the people who utter these words.
