Guerin Woods Senior Center
The Guerin Woods Senior Center is truly the heart of our neighborhood, open not just to Guerin residents but to anyone in our community age 55 and older. The Senior Center offers a lively gathering place where old friends meet and new friendships are made.
This specially-designed Center includes an expansive meeting and gathering space, a recreation area, a kitchen and a lending library, as well as a community garden with a greenhouse and raised beds. The monthly calendar for the Senior Center is filled with a broad spectrum of activities designed to enliven, entertain and engage all who take part.
Throughout our lives, much of our social interaction revolves around games, and the Senior Center is no exception, with weekly bunco, euchre and other card games among our most popular events. Spa nights, exercise classes and other events help meet our physical needs, while regular church services and Bible studies nurture the spiritual side, and special guest speakers and monthly open studio art making broaden our horizons.
From Monday lunches and coffee chats to special pot luck dinners, there’s often something delightful and delicious going on at the Center. Holidays and other occasions turn the Center into a special celebration, whether it’s an Oaks Day party, a Mother’s Day tea or some other festive event.
The Senior Center also hosts our regular Memory Café, a social gathering for people with memory loss and their care companions, designed to reduce isolation by bringing people together who are facing similar challenges. Offering a sense of joy and normalcy to an existence that often has too little of both, it brings participants together to eat, drink, relax and enjoy music, art, games and entertainment of all kinds.
