The Sandy Senior Center is a joint effort between the City of Sandy and Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services.
The city provides the facilities and it’s upkeep and Salt Lake County Aging & Adullt Services provides the operating staff. The numerous activities supported by this center are staffed by countless volunteers.
Advisory committee members elected from center participants to support Aging & Adult Services by providing programming opportunities, entertainment, and socialization to enrich the lives of participants.
Volunteering is the “life blood” of the Senior Center. Volunteers play a critical role in delivering quality programming as well as providing options for fit, active and engaged seniors. The Center has a wide variety of opportunities for all ages to volunteer time and talents. As the gap between available resources and the needs of seniors continues to grow, Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services believes the role of volunteering is important and we are always looking to add new programs at the Center. To find the volunteer opportunity that best suits your needs, skills, and time availability, simply talk to the staff.
The Center offers a comprehensive range of programs to enlighten, educate and enrich the lives of adults age 60 and over. We consider the Center akin to a “Senior Campus”; an abundant and evolving selection of classes, seminars and special activities are offered, including topics as diverse as Chinese language and Astronomy. For those wanting to explore their creative side, the center offers opportunities in art, craft, music and theater. We are proud of our health and physical activity classes that includes Yoga, Tai Chi, Enhanced Fitness, Fit ‘n Trim, low impact exercise for arthritis, and Zumba. There is a workout room with a weight machine and several stationary exercise machines.
