Mizell Center has been serving the greater Palm Springs area since 1975 and is an acknowledged leader in active aging.
The Center is a place that thrives on the sound of friends chatting over lunch in the dining room, music being played by talented volunteer/member musicians, instruction from a certified coach in A Matter of Balance, Mizell’s falls prevention program, case management services, and linkage to resources in the community. Members, seasonal residents, and guests are warmly welcomed.
Memberships, class fees, and donations from the community, like the annual support received from Desert Oasis Healthcare, also help to provide funding for our Meals on Wheels Program. Meals on Wheels delivers 450+ meals each weekday to homebound seniors and nine congregant sites, such as other senior centers, from Whitewater to the Salton Sea.
Our drivers are frequently the only person a homebound senior will see on a daily basis, making Meals on Wheels so much more than just a delivery service. It’s one of the primary reasons that Mizell clients are able to age in place and retain their independence and dignity.
Additionally, the Desert Hot Springs Senior Center, which was founded in 1979, has been operated by Mizell Center under contract with the City of DHS since 2017. This is a place where senior citizens can receive services and resources including a lunch program, bingo, clubs, special events and guest speakers.
