The dictionary gives no specific age defining when someone becomes a senior.
To play in the Senior PGA tournament or join AARP, you must be at least 50.
Some restaurant discounts start at age 55.
You will qualify for SRC programs like Senior Meals and Senior Wheels at age 60. Medicare starts at 65.

At SRC we don’t set any age at which someone becomes a senior.
We are happy to help anyone in the second half of life.

Remember, being a senior is a status symbol.
You were hot stuff as a high school senior, so enjoy being a senior again. You deserve the benefits!


Wherever you are in the second half of life, the Senior Resource Center can help you navigate
the complex choices of housing, health care, transportation, activities, encore careers,
senior discounts, relationships, legal aid, and a hundred other needs.
If we don’t know what’s available, we’ll find out!


We provide resources to help organizations and professionals who serve seniors.
