The mission of the Senior Center is to create opportunities for mindful aging through physical activity, social engagement, creativity, lifelong learning and guidance, which creates a positive impact on our entire community.
Primary Programs & Services
- Provide a balance of social, recreational, educational, wellness and financial programs for adults, age 55 and older.
- Elderly Services offers a single point of entry for access to programs and services that support our seniors, their family and the community.
- Offer a non‐medical, curb to curb transportation service for residents who are members age 60 and over or disabled.
- Conduct outreach to those in the community who are homebound.
Title III Grants
The Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging (SWCAA) offers Title III Grants. The Center applied and has received funding for a variety of programs and services, including but not limited to: Caregiver Educational Series, Caregiver Information, Chore Service, Transportation and several Recreation Programs. While these activities are offered free of charge to center members, we are asked to seek donations. Thus our suggestion box doubles as a donation box with small envelopes for people to indicate the program the donation is for: recreation, chore service, caregiver information & assistance, caregiver education or transportation.
Membership is open to individuals age 55 and older. There is no residency restriction. Membership is renewed annually in July as our membership year is July 1 through June 30. Monroe residents are $15.00 per person and Out of Town Residents are $20.00 per person.
