Sixty and Better envisions communities without isolated elders, with older adults staying connected, healthy, active, and contributing to community needs.
Sixty and Better empowers older adults to live with purpose, independence, and dignity.
- Person-centered Services
Founded in 1967, Sixty and Better strives to end isolation so those in the prime of their life can stay connected, healthy, and active. Through our comprehensive, evidence-based approach to aging, Sixty and Better participants significantly increase their activity levels, healthy eating habits, social interactions, and contribute to their local community in meaningful ways through volunteer projects.
Formerly Senior Citizen Services of Greater Tarrant County, Sixty and Better serves those aged 60+ at 25 neighborhood activity centers in 13 communities across Fort Worth and Tarrant County. Our signature programs include a congregate meal nutrition program, regular socialization activities, round-trip transportation services to some activity centers, volunteer opportunities, help with federal and state benefits enrollment, and health and wellness classes, such as A Matter of Balance Fall Prevention and Health for Me Chronic Disease Self Management.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we have benefited from the generosity of the community for five decades to keep older adults active and engaged.
