Welcome to the Alcosta Senior and Community Center

The Alcosta Senior and Community Center is an active independent activity center for adults ages 55 and older. It is a place for all people to participate, establish relationships, and share similar interests with others in a friendly environment. Patrons are welcome to sit wherever they wish and are encouraged to participate in multiple activities. Join us in continuing to make this a welcoming Center by saying “hello” to someone new, inviting someone to join you for lunch or holding the door for someone.

COVID - 19 Update 

All of us from the City of San Ramon hope you are doing well as we move through these unprecedented times. Here is the most recent information we have as it pertains to the COVID-19 public health crisis:

Contra Costa County Health Services (CCHS) has an Emergency Operations Center in place and is closely coordinating with other local, State, and Federal agencies responsible for tracking and mitigating the outcomes of COVID-19. CCHS has also set up a website to provide accurate recommendations and timely updates for both local governments and the community at large.

It is essential to understand that the situation is continuously changing as CCHS reacts to new information. We recognize the significant impacts this is having on the community we serve.

The City of San Ramon's response has been and will continue to be thoughtful, calculated, deliberate, and in conformance with CCHS's professional recommendations. We are maintaining close coordination with CCHS to respond rapidly, as necessary, to ensure we minimize the disruption of services to the community, while also ensuring we do our part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 according to the CCHS recommendations.

  • Through April, the following changes to City services will occur:
    - Senior citizen programs are canceled; however, the Senior Center will remain open, and residents can pick up meals

Contra Costa County Health Services recommends that people at higher risk of serious illness should not go to mass gatherings such as parades, sporting events, religious services, celebrations and concerts where people are within arm’s length of each other and there are 50 or more people. These measures to be in place for an initial period of two weeks, and we will continuously assess their impact to determine if they need to be adjusted.

People at higher risk include:

  • People who are 50 years old or older. Current evidence indicates that the risk of severe illness increases with age. The highest risk group are those 80 years and older.
  • People of any age who have underlying medical problems such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or chronic lung diseases like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) as well as those who are immunocompromised.

As a result of these recently released guidelines, the City of San Ramon will be canceling all City-sponsored events, as well as facility rentals, and programs in which we anticipate attendance will be higher than 50 people. Also, all activities and programs for ages 50+ at the Alcosta Senior and Community Center will be canceled due to the risk to those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19. These actions will take effect immediately and will remain in effect through at least April 30. This remains a fluid situation and the City will continue to work with Contra Costa County Health Services and monitor the situation.

The Senior Nutrition Program will continue to occur at the Alcosta Senior and Community Center, but in an altered manner. All meals will be packaged meals in the home-delivered format, which includes a 3-compartment tray for the frozen entrée and side dishes as well as bread, milk, and fruit items. Individuals interested in the meals will need to request the meal by 12pm Monday. All 7-pack meals will be available on Tuesday, from 12:00 - 1:30pm for curbside pick-up or delivery. No congregate format will be available.
