10 ABOUT THE SA SENIORS CARD The Seniors Card program is part of the Office for Ageing Well (previously Office for the Ageing). The name change reflects the Government’s priority to support older South Australians to age well. This is something the Seniors Card program has done since its inception in 1993, by helping its members stay active and connected to their community. The program celebrates the contribution of older people by rewarding them with incentives, special offers and discounts provided by hundreds of businesses across the state, as well as information on a variety of topics. If you travel interstate or to New Zealand, the Seniors Card is recognised there too, so take it with you whenever you leave home. Use this directory to find businesses that offer a discount to Seniors Card members. Businesses participate in the Seniors Card program to support seniors and are not reimbursed by the Government. For further discounts and special offers, as well as news, information and competitions, subscribe to WeekendPlus, a fortnightly digital magazine for South Australian seniors. WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
