Senior Health & Wellness

Serving active adults age 60 and older at locations throughout Harris County.

BakerRipley’s Senior Health and Wellness Centers are more than Bingo and a congregate meal. They are lively, laughter-filled places for community, friendship, and activities that promote physical, mental, and spiritual wellness.

About

Designed for adults age 60 and older, there are 16 BakerRipley Senior Health and Wellness Centers throughout Harris County—and each site is as unique as the Neighbors who attend.

For example, one site offers a multicultural faith study. Another has a senior fitness park with exercise equipment designed especially for older adults. Yet another has the BR Morning Perk, set up like a local bookstore, where seniors can order a coffee or latte, check out digital tablets, engage with civic projects, or hear presentations from local historians and community leaders.

BakerRipley has been serving seniors throughout Harris County for more than 75 years. Our Senior Health and Wellness Centers currently engage more than 3,300 older adults with a multitude of programs in English and Spanish.

 

Our Focus

Throughout our programming, we focus on eight domains of wellness:

Congregate Meals

Each Senior Health and Wellness Center serves a free lunch every week day, funded by Harris County Area Agency on Aging. During hurricane season, seniors also receive shelf stable meals to keep at home in case of a weather emergency.

Thanks to a partnership between BakerRipley and Common Market, seniors receive periodic fresh produce to enjoy at home. Common Market is a farm-to-table non-profit organization that works with local farmers to supply fresh produce. Through this partnership, thousands of pounds of fresh produce have been given to Neighbors served by BakerRipley.
