St. Clair Senior Center
Since 1980, the St. Clair Street Senior Center has been helping seniors live an active and independent lifestyle for as long as possible and without regard to socioeconomic status.
The St. Clair Street Senior Center provides a warm, caring place where those over the age of 60 can come together with other adults for services and activities that reflect shared experiences and skills, support one's needs and interests, broadens independence and maintains one's involvement in the community.
To provide vibrant public spaces and inclusive programs, delivered with visionary leadership and caring staff that engage the individual and strengthen the quality of life of our community.
Resources Available at the Saint Clair Senior Center
Support Group The Parkinson's Support Group Meets once a month on the first Friday unless otherwise posted. (See Meeting Schedule page).
Exercise We also encourage our members to get involved in an exercise program. Several weekly exercise programs are offered at the Center. Rock Steady Boxing ( taught off premises at another location) is designed specifically for Parkinson's. These boxing exercises emphasize regaining strength, balance, cardio and cognitive skills.
Ladies Share Group- On the 3rd Friday each month you can meet with other Ladies in a small private intimate setting and exchange information and learn how to deal with challenges associated with Parkinson's and other health challenges.
Men Share Group- This group meets by Zoom on the 3rd Friday each month to exchange information and learn how to deal with challenges associated with Parkinson's and other health challenges. A Zoom link is sent to Group members.
Get Creative-Take advantage of the Senior Center resources to improve quality of life. Being creative is good for the Parkinson's brain. There are painting classes and other hobby classes available.
Blow it out- People with Parkinson's get smaller in their writing and their voice projection as the disease progresses. But you can combat that by joining the choir which is reforming or joining the harmonica classes that focus on breathing.
