The Spencer House Seniors Community Centre is for seniors over 50. The Centre’s goal is to provide the services and programs which enable older adults to live independently, contribute to their community and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
The Centre is open Monday to Friday and offers a hot meal and various programs for seniors.
Spencer House Seniors’ Centre was officially opened on June 23, 1983 by its two founding members Doreen Fraser and Ida Zifkin.
Our centre is named after the late Lady Diana Spencer. After a visit by Prince Charles and Princess Diana to Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1983, it was decided that the new organization would be named after the Princess in tribute to the Royal Visit and to express the admiration and affection of the seniors towards the Princess.
The seniors wrote to Earl Spencer, Diana’s father, and received permission to use the family name for the new centre.
Our goal is to provide the services and programs which enable older adults to live independently, contribute to their community and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
