The Senior Population Deserves This Social, Fitness, and Education Center

Our new, expanded Senior Center is innovative in both space and concept.

As expressed by former Mayor John Knezovich after the dedication, this Senior Center is definitely not what some think when the words "Senior Center" runs through their mind. It is not a place reserved just to be "old" or one step away from a "nursing home" or "assisted living."

This is an implementation of a three-pronged vision: health awareness, lifestyle management, and wellness education.

If you haven't dropped by to see this addition to our life in Fort Collins, please do. You will be surprised.

Although the expansion of the Senior Center was celebrated last July, it is not totally finished. You still have a couple of opportunities to make a visible mark onto this achievement. Consider contributing in two areas — adding your name to one of the seats in the Education, Information, and Entertainment wing and purchasing a paver brick (or two or three) for the patio outside the EIE wing.

Three Organizations. One Goal.

A new era in community health and wellness begins this summer in Fort Collins. A innovative partnership between the City of Fort Collins Recreation Department, Columbine Health Systems (Columbine) and University of Colorado Health (UC Health) will create a unique and comprehensive public health and wellness program housed at the improved and expanded Fort Collins Senior Center.

Health and wellness programmatic offerings will be placed into three broad categories: Health Awareness, Lifestyle Management, and Wellness & Education.

The programs and activities provided through this partnership will address our community's needs while responding to the lifestyles of a growing senior population. Active, health-minded seniors will find opportunities in this extensive set of resources to help them remain healthy.

To see the initial lists of activities and programs under each one of the health groups, (Health Awareness, Lifestyle Management, and Wellness & Education), please take a look at the overall brochure here.
