Getting older may be inevitable, but no one should face the challenge of aging alone. Here 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.

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 and we partner with local hospitals to coach older adults returning home after a hospitalization.

To sum it up, we do a lot of good for a lot of people in a lot of different ways.Through our diverse services, we’re able to personalize support and develop an individualized approach to help each older adult in our community thrive.
