Senior Peer Advocates (SPA) are now at the Senior Center. 
SPA volunteers are trained and certified to help seniors and their families find help.  They provide information and assistance to connect Santa Clara residents to a variety of community resources, services and benefits, such as transportation, food, health care, caregiving/family support, legal services, and social/educational activities. 
Our SPAs are available through the Senior Center's Health & Wellness Program.  They work alongside our team of Registered Nurses and Care Manager to support and promote graceful aging and continued independence in the Santa Clara Community.  SPAs are not care managers, but they are trained to listen and talk to you about your needs.  SPA appointments are available, free of charge,  on Mondays, 10:00 am-noon, and Tuesdays, 1:00-3:00 pm, at the Senior Center.  Call the Senior Center front desk at (408) 615-3170 or drop in to book an appointment.
