Mission Statement

We help seniors and their families maintain and enhance their independent lifestyles through meaningful involvement and peer relationships within a family atmosphere, which values cultural heritage, diversity and individual worth.

Description

Aging-in-place and wellness programs at Hollywood Senior Multipurpose Center (HSMPC) give seniors access to activities that promote healthy and active lifestyles. For seniors who are less independent, in-home support services help to prevent loneliness and isolation and serve as a lifeline of assistance.

ACTIVITIES AND PROGRAMS OF HSMPC
Active seniors can enjoy lunch at one of seven nutrition sites and may participate in Yoga classes, weekly movies, bingo days, poker and bridge clubs, a computer lab, lunchtime dances, a travel club, commercial acting classes and the chorale club.

For homebound seniors, aging-in-place programs such as home delivered meals, case management and our transportation program enable seniors to maintain their independence at home.
