Information for Seniors

March 30, 2020

From the Executive Director of the Anchorage Senior Activity Center

Dear Members and Friends,

After watching Mayor Berkowitz's press conference on Friday, March 27, 2020, announcing that the emergency plan will continue to be in effect through April 14 and possibly beyond.

We understand this is a difficult and challenging time for many of us. We miss having the Center open as so many of us are very social. We plan to re-open April 15th unless we hear differently. The Hotline at the Anchorage Senior Activity Center is 770-2008. We will keep this line updated if there are any further changes.

About the Center

  • Our Main Number is 770-2000 and there is recording that lists each Department and how to leave a message. During the time please leave message as we will be checking the phones.
  • Nila Morgan, Medicare Counselor is taking phone appointments only from Monday thru Friday. Call her line for an appointment.
  • The Fitness Center is providing Zoom exercise classes by computer-you can log in to your computer and check our website for updates. Fitness instructors, Heidi and Brittney are teaching classes online. To participate please log-in to the links below.
  • Amy Urbanus, Nutritionist, is preparing to hold online nutrition education classes.
  • The facility has undergone deep cleaning from carpets to ceilings.

Other Services in the Community

If you need any kind of assistance, please call 2-1-1 to speak to a representative. There are grocery stores, pharmacies, and take-out food deliveries for those of you who need them.

Alaska Legal Services and many other social services are available for appointments by phone. There number is 272-9431.

The local MOA Health Department located on the corner of 9th and L Streets is also open.

Most of all, please continue to observe the "Hunkering Down" message from Mayor Berkowitz and Governor Dunleavy and stay safe! Below we compiled some links to ideas for entertainment from home.
