Older Adult Programs

​Health Alert: Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Education and Information  

Health AlertOlder adults (age 60+) are at increased risk for COVID-19 complications due to age or because of an underlying medical condition, so it is especially important to take actions to reduce risk of exposure.

The Maricopa County Department of Public Health has specialized tips for older adults and their family members to safeguard and lower chances of exposure and inform seniors what to do if you get sick. ​

All 15 Phoenix Senior Centers have temporarily closed. Members of the Senior Centers in need of in-home meal service can coordinate by ​​reaching out by phone to their senior center.

The Human Services Department operates 15 senior centers in which it provides an integrated system of services and resources for individuals to age in place.  Each center provides adults a variety of opportunities of support through recreation, social, education, health and wellness, advocacy and social services. The centers also provide information on senior programs and resources, minor home appliance replacement/repair for seniors and senior discount programs.    Find out more about the Neighborhood Services Department's Housing Repair Program.



Congregate meals contain one-third of the daily recommended dietary allowance as determined by the dietitian for the state of Arizona. Meals are served at each of the city's 15 senior centers Monday through Friday, however lunch times may vary between centers. Please call or read the center calendar for lunch service times.

There is no charge for meals for individuals age 60 years or older or disabled adults, however we do ask for contributions.  Contributions are used to fund and maintain the meal program.   All contributions are confidential and are accepted on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.  The city of Phoenix hopes if you can contribute, you will.   However, an inability to contribute will not prevent you from receiving a meal.  Center participants under the age of 60 and/or not disabled, are required to pay a nominal fee for each meal. 

Menus are posted to assist older adult and disabled clients in planning their visits to the center to enjoy their favorite noon meals with new or long-time friends.  Lunch reservations are requested three days in advance of the meal(s) and may be made when attending the center or by calling the senior center.  Find out what's on the menu this month.



The home delivered meal program is a referral-based program, which prepares and delivers nutritionally-balanced meals to home bound Phoenix residents age 60 years or older or disabled adults. To qualify for this program, residents must contact the Area Agency on Aging's Senior Helpline for enrollment.
