If you are a senior living in the Reno area, there are quite a few services and activities designed with you in mind. The City of Reno has a number of programs for older citizens offered through the Department of Parks, Recreation, & Community Services. In addition to ongoing programs, Reno publishes the Senior Connect Newsletter updated with activities and happenings during that month. The newsletter is available online and printed copies are available at senior activity locations around town. Starting in July, 2018, this will become a quarterly publication.

Sparks, Washoe County, and the University of Nevada, Reno also have programs and activities just for senior citizens. How about senior discounts? There are lots of those available if you know where to look. For more information and links to these resources (and many more), go to “Reno Area Senior Services, Resources & Programs.”
