The mission of the Edward E. Sullivan Senior Center is to provide an environment to enhance and enrich the lives of older adults by offering recreational activities, nutrition services, educational and wellness programs and social services to meet the diverse needs of all people.
Health programs are coordinated with local agencies to include full physicals, health and wellness screenings, foot care clinics, in-home assessments, nutrition counseling and flu and pneumonia immunizations. Educational classes and seminars are scheduled to keep people up to date on the latest information affecting their well-being and to teach foreign language and develop computer skills. Volunteer opportunities are numerous and contribute to the overall socialization within the center and community.
