Staying Independent

Most seniors want to stay as independent as possible for as long as possible, but it can be difficult when you factor in things like housing and transportation. Local senior centers are a great resource for remaining independent through local benefits such as meals, transportation, health screenings and clinics, information and referrals, social events, etc. Some towns have more active senior communities then others, so it’s important that you do your research to help you determine which will have the most benefits for your specific situation. Find a local senior center near you.
