Senior Centers

West Hartford's two senior centers offer a variety of recreational activities, social services and preventative health services to the town's senior citizens. There are hundreds of activities for seniors to choose from including classes in the arts, wellness and personal development and sports and fitness. Throughout the year, there are lectures and presentations as well as numerous special events and trips.  

Both senior centers also coordinate with social services and various community organizations to offer assistance programs to seniors with special needs or concerns. The senior centers publish bimonthly bulletins that contain information of interest to seniors as well as a complete schedule of programs and activities.

Nonresidents are welcome to participate in West Hartford senior center activities and become a member. To become a member you must be age 55 or older and pay $15 per calendar year for West Hartford residents and $40 per calendar year for non-West Hartford residents, which entitles you to participation at both the Elmwood and West Hartford Senior Centers. We welcome people of any age to participate in our programs without membership.               

There are many opportunities to help serve our community and one of the many ways is to be a volunteer at the senior centers. In fact, it is our volunteers that help make them very successful! Please consider being a VOLUNTEER
