Services for the Elderly is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization located at the rear of the Farmington Community/Senior Center. We are dedicated to Farmington’s older citizens by helping them remain independent, productive and at home through programs and services such as Meals-on-Wheels, Friendly Visitors, Friendly Shoppers, transportation to medical appointments and by loaning donated, used medical equipment to those in need. We also provide information on other services available so our older citizens and their families know where to go if assistance beyond what we can provide is needed.  Click Here to download our brochure.

CONGREGATE MEALS - FOOD WITH FRIENDS
Every Monday & Friday (except holidays) we serve a full lunch at the Farmington Community/Senior Center.  Lunch is served cafeteria style at 12 noon but people start to gather any time after 11:00 am to have a cup of coffee and socialize with others who come to lunch. Join us, bring a friend, if you have a caregiver bring them, if you are not a Farmington resident – that’s OK too. The cost is $2.75 at the door.  If you need transportation, Farmington residents can call 860-675-2390 to arrange for free Dial-a-Ride pickup.  Reservations are a necessity!  Please call no later than the day before.  Click on the month for the menu. October
