About the Senior Center:

The SCV Senior Center has served the Santa Clarita Valley aging population for more than 40 years, offering programs and services that promote quality of life for seniors to over 10,000 individuals and their families annually.

The SCV Senior Center provides nearly every program and service listed in the Los Angeles County Senior Center Directory, including Adult Day Program and Respite, Handyworker Program, Congregate and Home Delivered Meals, Information and Resource Referral, Health and Wellness Programs, Caregiver Resources and Support Groups, Lifelong Learning Classes, Transportation, Recreation, Leisure Activities, Fitness and Exercise and more.

The Adult Day Program is a licensed program specializing in the care and activities for adults with Alzheimer’s disease, other types of dementia, post-stroke, Parkinson’s or other conditions requiring assistance and supervision. The SCV Senior Center’s focus is to enhance the lives of participants by encouraging independence, while building on their skills, knowledge, strengths and abilities.

The Handyworker Program is designed to provide free minor home repairs to qualified homeowners to improve the safety and habitability of their homes. Individuals who qualify for the program are eligible for repairs to their dwelling unit. The program enables homeowners to live safely in their own homes by addressing health and safety issues.

The Congregate and Home Delivered Meals Program provides an opportunity to enhance the daily nutrient intake, nutritional status, social interactions and functionality of older adults. The center’s Congregate Meal sites allow for social interaction with others and promote conversation, camaraderie, support and friendship. The Home Delivered Meal Program allows those who are homebound a nutritious meal, while also receiving comfort and interaction from a Home Delivered Meal Driver. For many seniors, the driver is the only visitor they receive in the day. Giving residents the opportunity to connect with others provides relief from loneliness, social isolation and feelings of depression.

The Support Services Department is the largest component of the SCV Senior Center, offering a wide range of assistance and providing information about available Caregiver support resources and services. They are there to educate groups of current or potential caregivers and provide them with assistance. Care Management offers assistance in the form of access coordination in circumstances where the client is experiencing diminished functioning capacities, personal conditions or other characteristics that require the provision of services by formal service providers or family caregivers. The program is also designed to assist caregivers through the development of a care plan that provides home and community-based support services. These plans are additionally supported through counseling, support groups and workshops designed to improve decision-making and problem-solving skills related to caregiving responsibilities.

The Transportation Program serves individuals who are in need of transportation and have no other resource available. The program offers the comfort they want and the confidence they need when going to a doctor’s appointment, picking up a prescription and going grocery shopping, providing a sense of independence and freedom for their lives.

The center’s Health and Wellness Programs provide a safe, supportive and cheerful environment for adults to discover rewarding new hobbies and pleasurable crafts, learn new game skills, bring new adventures and expand horizons, enhancing life-long learning and engagement. The primary focus of the Health and Wellness Program is to promote physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellness in seniors in a relaxed, non-intimidating environment.

The public is invited to join more than 250 volunteers a month who support the SCV Senior Center, or just stop by to take a tour.

The Senior Center is located at 22900 Market Street in Newhall, and can be reached by calling 661-259-9444.
