Moving into advanced age can mean so many great things. But aging also comes with its share of difficulties. Retirement means living on a fixed income — often about $8,000 a year. Add to that inevitable health problems, an increased sense of dependency and the loneliness of living without a companion, as many seniors do.
That’s why The Salvation Army offers programs for seniors to help alleviate the stressful parts of aging, from free breakfasts to Social Security advice and medical consultations, as well as recreational activities and social gatherings. Our programs offer men and women the opportunity to enter their golden years with a renewed sense of life, comfort and dignity, and the knowledge that wherever life takes them next, happiness is sure to follow.
