Older Adult Services
At Peninsula Family Service, we believe togetherness is the key to living well at any age. That’s why our Older Adult Services help people stay connected to their community, their neighbors, and their passion for life. We offer a wide array of services that break down the barriers to our vision of opportunity, financial stability, and wellness for everyone, at every age. Through our programs, we reduce rates of illness and injury, maintain mobility, promote independence, and ensure aging members of our community live better, together.
Each of our programs provide older adults the tools they need to thrive. At our Fair Oaks Adult Activity Center, we offer fitness classes, nutritious meals, and a club for every interest. Our Senior Peer Counseling Program connects older adults with a volunteer counselor who makes weekly home-visits. Through our diverse services, we’re able to personalize support and develop an individualized approach to help each older adult in our community thrive.

Re-entering the workforce as an older adult can be challenging. Whether you’re coming out of retirement, looking to change careers, or have experienced a layoff, Peninsula Family Service is here to help.
Our Second Careers Employment Program prepares participants for today’s competitive job market through mock-interviews, vocational counseling, goal planning, resume workshops, paid internships, on-the-job-training, and employment referrals.
How it Works
Each participant is matched with a job coach who mentors them through their entire job search process, including:
- Skills assessment
- Resume development

For participants needing additional employment training, we provide paid internships at community service and public agencies. These internships offer an unparalleled opportunity to gain valuable on-the-job-experience and current references while participants continue to look for non-subsidized employment.
