The Idaho Falls Senior Citizen’s Center (SCCC) exists to enhance the quality of life for our local senior citizens. Chartered in 1973 as a non-profit entity, SCCC provides assistance, programs, services, and social activities to citizens 60 years and older. Available assistance includes access to basic legal and health insurance advice and AARP Safe Driving classes. AARP also provides free tax help and preparation. Regular weekly Fit and Fall Proof exercise classes help our seniors build or maintain body strength to be more resistant to life-changing falls. Local health organizations and other professional groups regularly provide free presentations of interest to our seniors.
SCCCs’ most important service our Nutrition Program. Five days per week, the SCCC kitchen staff prepares over 200 nutritious meals per day for delivery to home-bound seniors and disabled adults, Meals on Wheels. A dedicated delivery staff insures that the hot meals are delivered in a timely manner. For many home-bound seniors and disabled adults, this is the only time they have contact with the outside world. Another 100 plus lunch-time meals are prepared for the daily group of seniors who spend time at the center. All meals are prepared according to USDA requirements. Donations are greatly needed and appreciated.
Seniors who utilize the center enjoy a constant smorgasbord of activities. There are always bridge, pinochle and other card games in motion. Bingo games are frequently played and a Saturday Bingo game is opened to the public (18+ years old) with cash prizes.
