La Mirada Activity Center Features Unique Senior Programs
The La Mirada Activity Center offers a wide variety of programs and classes for seniors that provide opportunities for community involvement, socialization, information, hot lunches, health and wellness, and much more.
The La Mirada Quilters is one of the many groups that meet at the Activity Center. The quilters are a group who meet twice a week to exchange quilting ideas and fellowship. Their quilting activities are not just limited to personal items, as several times a year their efforts are directed to giving back to the community. They provide place mats for Meals On Wheels, lap quilts for hospice patients, and Christmas stockings for military personnel.
“Ask the Nurse” Wednesdays is conducted by Biola Nursing students and is a time where the students provide information on medications, diet, exercise and overall health and wellness. This program begins August 30 and runs through December 13 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. There is no charge for these informational sessions and no need to make an appointment.
“The La Mirada Quilters and “Ask the Nurse” Wednesdays are just two of the many programs offered for seniors,” says Community Services Supervisor Oliver Osuna. “We encourage all seniors in the community to visit the Activity Center and find a class that interests them.”
