The Department of Senior Services provides quality programs and services to promote social, physical, and psychological well-being in response to the needs of adults, seniors and children of Deerfield Beach and northern Broward County. In 1981, a joint effort between the City and the Area Agency on Aging of Broward County created the Northeast (NE) Focal Point Senior Center to provide federally mandated services to individuals age sixty and over. Senior Services also administers the Intergenerational Adult Day Services Center, the Creole/Portuguese Adult Day Services, the Child Care Center, the Alzheimer’s Day Care Center, and the Thrift Shop.
Funding for the Senior Services Department comes from federal and state administered grants, fees for services, fund-raisers, the Area Agency on Aging, NE Focal Point CASA*, Inc. (Children’s, Alzheimer’s, Senior and Adult Services), United Way of Broward County, NE Focal Point Thrift Shop, and the City of Deerfield Beach General Fund.
