Therapeutic Recreation Programs for Older Adults


Senior+ Program

Senior+ is an inclusive program within senior centers for Fairfax County residents ages 55 and older who have mild disabilities and impairments. This program enables participants to remain in the least restrictive environment and maintain as much independence as possible. Senior+ is available at seven sites. The program is sponsored by Neighborhood and Community Services and is operated in partnership with Easter Seals Greater Washington-Baltimore Region.

Easter Seals contract staff consists of a full-time Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS); health monitoring is provided by a Registered Nurse (RN); and consultation on behavior and emotional issues is provided by a Mental Health Therapist (MHT). Together, they develop an individual wellness plan that outlines the goals that each client is working to achieve. When attending senior centers, Senior+ members are able to follow the regular center schedule and are encouraged to participate in all activities. When modifications are necessary, the Senior+ team provides equipment, instruction, and support to ensure the participant’s success.
