marian,

Are you looking for activities or an adult day care facility?

Here are some adult day care articles that might help give you some insight to what we typical have in the US. I hope these help.

where are the facilities for retired people who would like to join in activities with other seniors, yoga, Tai Chi learning IT skills going on outings etc. I can only find day care for seriously geriatric people to help their carers, in the UK we can join Age Concern for $10:00 a year we can then join any activity that interests us
