Senior Activities and Health and Wellness
In accordance with the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Lancaster County Office of Aging’s mission for the Health and Wellness program is to promote healthier lifestyles among older Pennsylvanians through the implementation of evidence-based programs. Evidence-based disease prevention and health promotion programs reduce the need for more costly medical interventions, support older adults in making lifestyle changes to improve their health and empower older adults with the information they need to age well.

Our virtual Senior Center, LCOA Virtual Connections, offers Lancaster County residents age 60+ an opportunity to connect with other seniors to play games, create art, learn a musical instrument, exercise, or learn new information. Our center offers FREE programs Monday thru Friday. Participants must have reliable internet service, a computer, laptop or a tablet and ZOOM downloaded on the device. If an eligible senior is interested in registering for the center, call Debbie Groff at Lancaster County Office of Aging 717-299-7979 or email email@example.com . Over the telephone, our staff enters registration information with the participant. We also give step by step guidance on how to use the portal to enter classes, access the schedule and preregister for art classes.
