Tracking attendance at senior center activities and analyzing this data is the key to increased engagement and resident satisfaction. At senior centers, high attendance levels at events can demonstrate engagement of members and residents, as well as make it easier to determine what events your members are enjoying and which may not be their favorites.
For senior center activity calendars in 2021, the focus should be on increasing engagement and socialization with every activity, whether through in person, virtual, or hybrid activity calendars.

Providing virtual socialization allows seniors to stay healthy without the risk in-person socialization can bring. Check out these 9 fun online group activities for your senior center residents.
