Growing old doesn't mean you stop growing. Our staff can help you stay active, learn new skills and meet new people. Let us tell you why our senior centers aren't "just for old people!"
The Town of East Hartford Senior Services serves residents age fifty-five and older as well as caregivers. Its mission is to safeguard and empower East Hartford older adults in their personal efforts to sustain dignity, integrity, health, well being, and independence. By taking a holistic approach, staff responds to the psychological, biological, social, and physiological needs of its residents. Staff is available to assist with meeting basic needs, short-term case management, assessments, crisis intervention, application assistance, advocacy, community education, and family and caregiver consultations.
A priority of Senior Services is to help individuals remain independent in the community for as long as possible. Creative and well-informed staff work in conjunction with state and local agencies to offer up-to-date information and referral services. Assistance is also available with housing, transportation, insurance, food, caregiving, home care, and volunteering.
