Senior Services

Temporary Closure of Centers - Charles Place, Sexton Hall, Hearthstone Lodge

Out of an abundance of caution and because the older adult population is one of the groups most susceptible to the COVID-19 virus, our centers will be closed until further notice.  

During the time our centers are closed, we will continue to serve our most vulnerable older adults through the Meals on Wheels program.  We will also continue to monitor our phone lines and will return calls as we are able. For further updates, please continue to check the website.
