SeniorsBeing a senior in Prince George's County is better than ever! The Department of Parks and Recreation, Senior Services are an innovative body designed to help meet the needs, wants and aspirations of seniors 60 & better as they age in place here in the County. Recognizing the diverse aging populations, we challenge ageism, celebrate the wisdom and experience of age, and provide opportunities to engage in meaningful activities, which enhance one's personal well-being through the seven dimensions of wellness: social, emotional, physical, environmental, intellectual, vocational and spiritual.
M-NCPPC offers six friendly and inviting senior activity centers especially for people aged 60 and better. These senior activity centers offer special events, trips, classes, health programs, information and referrals. Provided by the Prince George’s County Department of Family Services, Aging Services Division, transportation and the senior nutrition program featuring hot lunches are also available at these sites. If you are a resident of Prince George’s or Montgomery Counties, membership cards for admission to these senior activity centers are free of charge and allow you to participate in the programs of interest to you.
