Center for Active Aging

The Center for Active Aging provides an array of structured and comprehensive programs and services. These help boost independence, community engagement, and the quality of life of adults with disabilities as well as children and the elderly in Deerfield Beach, FL and northern Broward County.

The Community Services Department provides a structured and comprehensive array of programs and services that improves the independence, community engagement and quality of life of adults, seniors and children of Deerfield Beach and northern Broward County.

In 1981 the City of Deerfield Beach and the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Broward County partnered to develop the Center for Active Aging (formerly Northeast Focal Point).

Over the last 40 years, the Center for Active Aging has expanded and now operates and administers an Alzheimer’s and Multicultural Day Care Cent and Center for Active Aging. Due to construction of the new Center for Active Aging, the Preschool will be closed for the 2021-2022 school year.

By combining compassion with unparalleled service, the Center for Active Aging continues to grow while remaining a place “Where Life Happens” for so many in our community.
