Little House, Roslyn G. Morris Activity Center

 

Little House Activity Center 

The culture of Little House is to fill each day with a balance of health & wellness, intellectual stimlation, and socialization.

Little House provides a way of life based on the belief that no matter what their age:

  • People have not done all the things they would like to do
  • They have not met all the people they care to know
  • They have not contributed all they could to the health and well-being if their community

     Think of Little House as a "home away from home". At Little House there are a wide array of activities - card games, opportunities to learn a second language, exercise programs to stay active, relaxing massages, book and stamp clubs, and much more. Members can learn a new skill or hobby, such as woodworking, art, ceramics, and lapidary, to name a few.

     For "techies" there is a computer lab as well as classes from beginner to advanced, with fun lessons in tracing a family tree online, using digital graphics, exploring the Web, or designing cutomized greeting cards. We offer a "Boot Camp" for hard-core, physical fitness buffs, a strength training class as well as other wellness programs for adults of all ages and physical conditions.

     Additionally, Little House offers one-on-one guidance for topics vital to aging adults who want to live an independent lifestyle. Our Travel Desk plans group outings from regional to worldwide, or you can get help from an expert in planning a personal trip. All Little House counselors have been carefully screened by Peninsula Volunteers staff - there is no sales pitch, rather a sharing of information and options.

     Mostly, Little House is a great place for the community to enjoy - play cards or pool, watch a movie, listen to a speaker, or just come and hang out! Little House, provided by Peninsula Volunteers, is located in Nealon Park, conveniently near train and bus lines, El Camino Real and the Stanford Shopping Center. Parking is free.
