Read what senior citizens who have benefited from Scotts Valley Senior Life Association are saying about us.

During my years as Chairman of the Spring Lakes Park Management Committee in Scotts Valley, I witnessed Scotts Valley Senior Life Association (SVSLA) directly benefit our Park residents in several different ways. For immediate, potentially life-saving support, SVSLA provided a grant with which we purchased an automated defibrillator (AED) for our club house. As part of its educational program, SVSLA sponsored an excellent presentation here on sleep disorders, given by a board-certified neurologist, Stanford-trained in sleep medicine. They also provided a method for Park residents to make a tax-deductible contribution to a fund which will assist Park residents who are in need of financial support to pay a large Park assessment.

I’m extremely impressed with SVSLA, a local organization very willing to find new and different ways to enhance the health and well-being of our community’s seniors.

Don and I regularly enjoyed the Scotts Valley Senior Life Association Community Dine Out Program because it gave us another opportunity to get to know and enjoy other residents and have a lovely dinner out. The food was good and we always had a lovely time in this friendly community setting.

Scotts Valley Senior Life Association (SVSLA) works in many ways to enable community building among seniors in our community. One example is the new stove and dishwasher SVSLA donated to Montevalle for the Montevalle Lodge where groups of seniors come to socialize. The dishwasher and stove were recently used in the preparation of a beautiful Thanksgiving community dinner for local seniors to enjoy.

I look forward to attending Scotts Valley Senior Life Association–sponsored educational presentations to learn about civic, health, and financial topics relevant to senior citizens like myself. I always come away with new information to use to improve my situation. The expert presenters are local professionals who can answer my questions as well as explain where I can obtain further information. These presentations also foster a sense of community because audience members share the same concerns.

Scotts Valley Senior Life Association provides excellent support to the seniors of Scotts Valley in the form of annual “State of the City” addresses, volunteer opportunities, science-based presentations on nutrition, health, and safety, grants to facilities that cater to senior citizens, and more. They keep us aware of important issues. I personally appreciate hearing from our Mayors and department heads at the well-attended “State of the City” addresses.
