The Quinebaug Valley Senior Citizen Center was established as an advisory and coordinating agency, as well as a direct service provider with a focal point of concern for the needs of low income, elderly, and/or handicapped residents over the age of 55, in the 11 town area of Northeastern Connecticut.
Socially we serve as a meal site for TVCCA's Senior Nutrition Cafe, Tuesday - Friday at 11:30am, reservations are required. We offer monthly catered lunches and motor coach trips. We have groups that meet together to knit & crochet, quilt, exercise, paint, play pokeno,and other card games. We distribute Farmer's Market vouchers in the summer. We offer programs on topics of interest to our senior community. Recent ones were on the probate process, fall prevention, and walking to be healthy.
As counselors, we have three "Choices" trained counselors to help seniors navigate the Medicare system. We also offer information for senior housing, snap, veterans issues and a myriad of other programs that are daunting in their paperwork requirements. Calling ahead for an appointment is greatly appreciated.
