The Senior Centers are operated for Los Alamos County under contract with a local non-profit organization, Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization (LARSO). The two centers are available to seniors for various activities.
The Los Alamos Betty Ehart Senior Center is located at 1101 Bathtub Row, next to Mesa Public Library. The White Rock Senior Center is located at 133 Longview Drive in the Municipal Complex.
LARSO provides congregate and home delivered meals, transportation services, educational and social programs, entertainment, and volunteer opportunities to the Los Alamos senior citizen population. An Adult Day Care (Day Out) program is also available to give caregivers respite. The program provides a variety of supervised activities in a cheerful and safe surrounding. Adults of all ages who may be lonely or homebound due to short-term or long-term physical problems can benefit from some time away from home with new friends.
