Senior Adult Program

Senior Services offers our mature adult with disabilities the opportunity to remain engaged in the community through activities to enhance, social cultural and recreational experiences. Activities include both site based and regional day trips.

OVERVIEW

The UCPNB Senior Adult Program serves adults with developmental disabilities ages 50 and older.  We are located in the heart of Rohnert Park, providing access to a number of shops, nature trails, parks, restaurants, and other activities within walking distance.  The building has a large program room and a variety of break out classrooms. The inside has been  designed to provide a relaxing environment that is complemented with music, LED lighting, and furnishings designed for the use and comfort of senior adults.

The purpose of the program is to offer a variety of site-based and community-based Recreation, Education, and Wellness activities. The Senior Program provides activities that stimulate, enhance, and provide overall cognitive functioning,  positive social interaction, and improves everyones’ quality of life.

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

Although there is a structured schedule, participants have a choice of multiple activities that are offered on a daily basis. Our desire is for seniors to continue a life-long learning, enjoyment of recreation, and an enhanced wellness experience. 

On-site recreation, education, and wellness activities include: (1) arts and crafts, (2) stretching and light exercise, (3) nutrition education and healthy cooking, (4) music, Karaoke, sing-a-longs, and free style dance, (5) reading and storytelling, (6) current events and reality orientation, and (6) flora and fauna and gardening.

Participating in community-based activities is a primary focus of the program. Rohnert Park and surrounding communities provide ample opportunity for: (1) bowling outings, (2) park, trail, and open space walks, (3) trips to libraries, theaters, and museums, (4) nature and gardening experiences, (5) attending sports events, (6) structured classes, and (7) attending seasonal special events such as: the Sonoma County Fair and the Farmers Markets.

On-site and community based activities provide a well-rounded program for the participants. The program plays a vital role in allowing senior adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to “age in place” safely and comfortably with the support of their community.
