The Senior Program serves seniors, age 60+ throughout the county in centers located in Placitas, Pena Blanca, Bernalillo, Jemez Valley, Cuba, Corrales, and Rio Rancho. The program goal is to secure and maintain the independence of county residents age 60+. All seniors are invited to visit any center, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am until 5:00 pm to join in activities and lead them, as well. Services are free, though donations are requested to help cover the costs of program operations.
The Corrales Senior Center, located at 4324A Corrales Road, is funded by the Sandoval County Commission and the New Mexico Department of Aging and Long Term Services Non Metro Area Agency on Aging. All services are available to any senior 60 years of age or older and their spouse. While there is no fee required for participation at the Center, donations are accepted.
We have a suggested donation of $1.50 for each meal and $2.00 for transportation. No one is ever refused service if they do not donate. All donations are put back in to the Senior Program services.

The meals are well balanced, nutritional and a great opportunity to meet and spend time visiting with friends and neighbors. If an individual requests a homebound meal, the Center staff will do a State required assessment to determine if they meet the homebound criteria. Those meals are also provided Monday through Friday. The June menu is available for download. The mealsite is at the Meadowlark Senior Center. Sandoval County provides the meals and the City of Rio Rancho operates the daily activities.
