The Orange County Department on Aging (OCDOA) is a one-stop resource where older adults and caregivers experience a welcoming atmosphere and can meet their social, mental, physical, financial, and day-to-day practical needs. At the Robert and Pearl Seymour Center, participants will find a wide variety of activities and special events happening every day. Some of our integrated services and programs include health and wellness fitness classes, art, craft, dance, music, theater, language and technology classes, lunch, and a host of educational and special opportunities. Other offerings are support and interest groups, i.e. caregivers support, book clubs, low vision, and memory cafes. And the list goes on!
Annually at the Seymour Center we serve more than 2,500 individuals from diverse populations. Volunteer engagement provides unique ways to get involved within and outside the center. There are always well-planned day trips, weekend getaways, and extended travel excursions that one can look forward to. Membership to the center is free, but requires registration. We offer assistance with local public transportation and mature adult employment services.
Our mission is to provide leadership in planning and operating a system of integrated aging services through state of the art senior centers, serving as focal points for coordinated community and individualized programs designed to educate seniors and their families and maximize the health, well-being, community engagement, and independence of older adults at all functional levels.
