Love for the Elderly

With great pleasure, we would like to announce that the Royal Oak Senior Community Center is an Ambassador for this great program. The Senior Center receives periodically an envelope filled with heartwarming cards and messages from individuals across our globe. If you or if you know of someone that would enjoy receiving a friendly letter from time-to-time, please call the Senior Center at (248) 246-3900 and ask for either Carolyn or Dorothy.

Do you know a Senior who lives alone and could use a lift in their long day? Call the Senior Center at 248-246-3900 and we will have a hand written letter sent from anonymous people across the country through the Love for Our Elders program. Additional info...
