Karen Poteat, center, owner of The Aiken Center for Active Seniors, sits with Norbert Denil, left, and Jim Donovan as they help celebrate the Center’s first year of business on Wednesday afternoon. Poteat said the success of the upscale adult care center should also be credited to the Aiken community for throwing such huge support behind the Center. The Center offers various activities and events, games and learning sessions, which include computer classes. What keeps the Center different from other adult care centers is the residents here come, hang out and socialize in a dignified setting as if they would still be sitting on their couch at home, Poteat said. The Center is located at 690 Medical Park Drive. For more information, call 803-226-0355 or visit www.aikenactive.us.
