Recent studies show that consistent human contact and interaction can reduce dementia and depression.

The Salvation Army showers senior citizens with love and serves them with respect.

Every year, older adults are welcomed with open arms in Salvation Army corps community centers across the country. Rather than simply allowing these wonderful men and women to fend for themselves against loneliness and depression, we organize community meals, offer joyful activities, visit the homebound, and even provide residential facilities for those in need.

Embrace our senior citizens. You can help.

Every day, we serve thousands of
older adults across the country through:

Community

Every Salvation Army corps community center reaches out to the senior citizens of their community in different ways, meeting their specific needs. Through different programs, older adults can gather together to share interests, develop new skills, and enjoy the company of their peers.

Activities

Engaging the minds and bodies of older adults helps keep them young, active, and happy. At The Salvation Army, they can enjoy educational classes, kindle friendships over lunch, relive their youth with dances, take pre-retirement seminars, and countless other activities.

Residences

The Salvation Army operates several residential facilities for older adults, providing not only living quarters, but also an atmosphere of love, acceptance, and encouragement.

Adult Day Care Centers

Mental and physical disabilities can take a toll not only on older adults, but on their spouses and providers as well. Knowing this, The Salvation Army provides adult day care programs where those who are unable to take care of themselves can enjoy activities and friendships while their providers are given the opportunity to take care of other life matters for a few hours.
