Recreation

Opportunities to engage in recreation and social activities regardless of your age or ability.

The Alexandria Adult Day Services Center is a daytime program for older adults with disabilities.  The Center offers therapeutic recreation programs and leisure activities for center participants to help increase their physical, mental, emotional and social abilities. 

Senior Centers offer independent seniors opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities including exercise, creative activities, field trips, music, education and information, computer classes, English as a second language, cultural activities, inter-generational activities, celebrations and fun!  Center participants also enjoy nutritious meals and spend time making friends and socializing.
