The problem with social_facility=outreach, even if you also use social_facility:for=senior, is that it doesn't specify which of the many types of services are available.  Subtags for such things as adult daycare would also be useful.

adult day care might be taken care of by social_facility=outreach?  http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:social_facility

 created a proposal for amenity=daycare:

 "day care" is a very vague and ambiguous term. I assumed it referred to care of elderly or disabled people etc.
 As the proposal seems it refers to specifically child care, it would be better to specify that in the tag name. So amenity=child_care or something.
 Also, it needs to clarify how this is different from amenity=kindergarten. Is it just for after-school care / care of school-age children?
 typically, day care for children in the US can start with infants, and kindergarden
 is usually a single year for 5 year olds between day care and primary school.
 kindergarden might be offered by a daycare for their oldest children, or by
 primary schools for children who will be attending 1st grade.
 there are also day cares for adults/disabled in the US, which probably could be
 factored in.
