Coming of Age at the Focal Point:
How Senior Centers Enhance Quality of Life for Older Adults
|by Althia Ellis
Independence and dignity are values that come alive in this book as the author takes her readers into a world that nurtures mind, body, and soul - a senior center. The behaviors of active seniors captivated the author's attention as she watched them interact and make new friendships, participate in meaningful activities, engage in volunteer service, and take advantage of many resources available to them. Senior centers typically attract the over fifty crowd and many regard the center as their sanctuary-a home away from home.
