Adults above the age of 60 are the most vulnerable to the coronavirus. The elderly citizens of Buena Park are battling the spread of the virus effectively thanks to the efforts of the Buena Park Senior Activity Center and the Buena Park city administration.

The Buena Park Senior Activity Center is hosting an outdoor Senior Fitness Facility, computer lab, and support groups by appointment. Senior classes including exercise, line dancing, pickleball, Car Bingo, and fitness circuit are currently ongoing. However, they require advanced registration. The center also has Zoom activities available online or by phone. These activities include Zoom Bingo, Hula & Ukulele classes, and more. Those who are interested in the activity classes can call (714) 236-3870 for more details. Complete details about all of the activities can be found in its monthly newsletter, The Key.

The center has converted the Senior Lunch Café Program, provided by Meals on Wheels Orange County, to a frozen meal grab-and-go via drive-thru. The program happens every Tuesday from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The center also says that the Senior Grocery Program, provided by Second Harvest OC, will be at 10:15 AM every Thursday via a drive-thru process. The center requests participants to follow the arrows and staff and to not exit their vehicle. Walk-ups can be accommodated but the program can only run while supplies last. Readers can call (714) 236-3870 for more information or to enroll in the aforementioned programs.

Those seniors who are in the need of additional Buena Park senior resources or are in need of talking to someone about their feelings or one of life's challenges can leave a message for Senior Outreach Worker LCSW Rosemary Nielsen at (714) 236-3876; she is in the office on Wednesday from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
