SENIOR LIFE OFFICE
The Senior Life Director is the head of the Senior Life Office and has executive authority over all programs and activities in connection therewith. The Senior Life Director is responsible for the development and adoption of all policies and rules governing the operation of the Senior Life Office and the Senior Center which is located behind City Hall. The Director also must evaluate, initiate and coordinate City programs, activities and services for senior citizens, determine the needs of our senior citizens and actively pursue the fulfillment and satisfaction of those needs within the community, and preside over all meetings of the Senior Advisory Council, which makes recommendations and proposals for programs, services and activities for the Senior Life Office.
The Fairview Park Senior Center is one of the hidden gems of our city. Located directly behind City Hall, the 10,000 square foot building has been the home of the Senior Life Office since 2000. The Center is under the direction of Regina Sillasen and with the help of her dedicated and caring staff, is open Monday thru Friday, 8:30 – 4:30 to assist seniors 55 and older. Our staff consists of a social worker available to assist Fairview Park residents with questions and concerns.
The Center offers something for everyone:
Various programs and events to cover a wide range of interests, including:
We also have two wheelchair accessible vans which enable us to offer transportation to necessary appointments for Fairview Park’s senior residents.
We are extremely proud of our Senior Center and are happy to show it off! If you are 55 or older and have never been to the Center, please stop in for a tour and a copy of our newsletter highlighting upcoming events and programs. All are welcome!
