How Can We Help You?
Senior Services is a division of the Town’s Human Services Department and its primary mission is to promote independence, personal enrichment, and an enhanced quality of life for Glastonbury residents of all ages through a variety of programs and services. Glastonbury Senior Services serves Glastonbury residents age 50 and above. Acting as a community focal point, this division offers a wide variety of programs and services including social, educational, recreational, wellness, cultural and informational activities. Any senior resident is welcome to participate in the activities offered as no membership dues are required.
The Glastonbury Senior Center was recognized and accredited by the National Institute of Senior Centers in 2007 and re-accredited in 2018. The accreditation process is a quality assurance program requiring community involvement in the self-assessment process and an examination of 9 standards: community, administration, records and reports, fiscal management, governance, evaluation of programs, facility, purpose and planning. The letter of accreditation particularly noted the wide variety of exceptional program choices offered to participating seniors; outstanding leadership and commitment by the staff; a very strong, dedicated and diversified volunteer corps, and an exceptional daily lunch service.
