Senior Adult Program

Where seniors with disabilities enjoy an active, rewarding retirement!

 

The Arc Senior Adult Program offers a meaningful daily routine to individuals age 50+ with developmental and cognitive disabilities, who may be slowing down and experiencing age related health issues.

There are currently openings in this unique retirement day program, designed to provide a safe supportive environment to participants and peace of mind to families and caregivers.

 

Through a schedule of recreation, skill maintenance, and social interaction, individuals are guided through their day at two different locations in the beautiful setting of Bayview Park, part of the City of Pensacola Neighborhood Services.

 

  • The Bayview Senior Citizens Center: for seniors who are still fairly independent and have the ability and interest to spend the day in a community setting, with moderate supervision.

 

  • The Vincent Andry Senior Adult Program: for individuals who require a higher level of supervision and support (i.e. eating, mobility, toileting)

 

Participants engage in activities such as music; art and crafts, exercise and community outings. They regularly enjoy guest speakers and performances by local entertainers. They also receive health screenings and learn vital information about nutrition and health issues.
