The Highland Park Senior Center is a Division of the City of Highland Park created in 1976 to meet the needs of the community’s senior population.  A private residence, built in 1929 by General Robert E. Wood, was purchased to serve as the site of the Senior Center. The building was renovated, providing a warm and comfortable atmosphere.

The Division of Senior Services provides health, recreational, cultural, educational and counseling services to the City’s senior population. The division also serves as a resource and advocate in areas of importance to the well-being of the senior community, with primary attention given to transportation, housing and personal safety. All programs are available to individuals age 50 and older. A nominal membership fee is required for participation in many of the free programs. A membership form is available for individuals interested in becoming a member. However, all residents are welcome to participate in fee-based programming.

A wide array of programming for a membership that spans five decades is provided. Educational lectures, social events, luncheons, classes in a variety of areas of interest, a wide selection of exercise classes, trips and tours and intergenerational programs are offered throughout the year. In additional, social services including information and referral, counseling, a medical equipment loan closet, a friendly visitor program, and a telephone reassurance program are open to the entire community on a no-fee basis.

Transportation is a priority, and the Senior Center works with the Transit Division and Moraine Township to provide the Senior Connector and the Taxi Subsidy programs.
