HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Secretary of Aging Brian Duke today recognized September as Senior Community Center Month, commending the efforts of senior community centers in providing invaluable services for older adults.
"Senior community centers play a vital role in helping older Pennsylvanians stay healthy by providing programs that concentrate on wellness, nutrition and prevention," Duke said. "Many senior centers provide a network of programs and assistance for older Pennsylvanians that can help them to remain active while continuing to live in their homes."
This year's theme, "Senior Centers: Experts at Living Well," highlights the resources and tools senior community centers offer older adults to enhance their lives and allow them to age and live well.
The 550 senior community centers throughout Pennsylvania provide a combination of health and wellness activities such as exercise classes, falls prevention education, preventative programs and nutritious meals. Last fiscal year, 3,495,964 nutritious meals were served in centers throughout the state to 73,469 eligible older Pennsylvanians.
Senior community centers also provide a variety of opportunities for older adults to socialize, obtain information about services and supports, learn a new skill, and volunteer to help their community or enhance their health. Centers work closely with their Area Agencies on Aging to provide access to legal assistance, health screening, senior employment and volunteer programs.
Recently, Governor Tom Corbett awarded grants totaling $2 million, helping 36 senior community centers. The grants will provide opportunities to update facilities and implement innovative programs to meet the needs of current and future members. The grant program continues this fiscal year and senior centers have until Sept. 5, 2014, to apply through a competitive grant process.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
