Weakley County Senior Citizen Centers Make a Huge Difference!


For a place like Weakley County, our local senior centers make all the difference in the world. Not only are they a place for people to go unwind, exercise, fellowship, and have fun – they also support and provide so much for the people of Weakley County. They are thriving pieces of this county that we should appreciate.

This post is a cheers to the Senior Centers of Weakley County, all that you do, and all that inspire in others.  It means more than you know.

Most people know that Senior Citizens Centers provide daily activities like cards, dominoes, and other fun games for all wanting to participate.

Did you know that senior centers also have Bingo, shuffleboard, singings, pot lucks, dances, trips,  $5.00 fundraiser lunches, line dance aerobics, ping-pong, exercising, ZUMBA, movie day, crafts, quilting, and ice cream and cake parties? Did you know that senior citizens centers are also for anyone who wants to come? What an amazing resource for fellowship in small communities like ours.

The Office on Aging in Dresden is doing so much to enhance the lives of the people in this community. With the help of United Way, they provide thousands of Meals on Wheels to people in the county including Dresden, Martin, Sharon, Gleason, Greenfield, Palmersville, Sidonia, and Latham. Without these meals, many people would not get to eat at all some days.

The Office on Aging also has nutrition services, homemake service, telephone reassurance, health screenings, friendly visiting, physical fitness, educational programs, transportation, and even respite. It is a largely used and necessary element for the well-being of Weakley County’s elderly, disabled, sick, and/or rehabilitating population.
