Potomac, MD Senior Care Resources

Senior Centers

One place where you will find your tax dollars hard at work is at the many wonderful senior centers that the Washington Metropolitan Area has to offer. These centers provide a boost to the health of our senior community by offering a full menu of classes and activities that keep them mentally and physically engaged. Perhaps even more important is the role these centers play in easing the social isolation that so often plagues the elderly. For many seniors, the centers have been a cure for loneliness and a spot where new friendships have flourished.

  • North Potomac Senior Center
    • The North Potomac Senior Center is located within the Nancy H. Dacek North Potomac Community Recreation Center. This large center offers a wide-variety of exercise, health, sports, educational, wellness, and social activities daily. The center also offers workshops, short-term classes and introductory demonstrations, along with some regularly scheduled drop-in programs, sports activities (basketball, pickleball, volleyball, table tennis, etc.), informal social activities, exercise videos, lectures, and community services. The center also offers technology programs, seminars, lectures, and individualized services for those needing community or county-based services. Parties, entertainment, volunteer and travel opportunities, ethnic and cultural programs, and just plain fun round out the daily activity schedule at this location.
