“Every moment is a fresh beginning.”
From Senior Center Supervisor Sarah Taylor:
Every September we celebrate National Senior Center month – a time to highlight our Center and what makes our community here so special! This past year has been like no other, and Senior Centers across the country rallied to respond to the pandemic, providing critical supports and services to Seniors everywhere. In Mansfield, our team immediately transitioned from a robust daily schedule of in-person programming to providing safe, contactless essential services including meal delivery, transportation, and countless hours of support and outreach. We made surprise deliveries with gifts and treats to brighten the days and make sure everyone knew we were here for them. We developed online programming, purchased additional devices to ensure people had access to the internet and offered technology support as a way to help keep people engaged and connected. And we played an integral role in providing COVID-19 guidance, vaccine education, and assistance with scheduling appointments when the vaccine became available. Now, as we reopen cautiously with the dedicated support of our volunteers, we are rebuilding our program again in ways that reflect what we’ve learned and enable us to continue to grow.
And, so, this month as we celebrate all that our Senior Center is and take advantage of this fresh beginning, we’d like to hear from you – what does our Center mean to you? We’ll be sharing all of your answers on our social media pages, at the Center and on our website throughout the month, as we shine a light on our community and our program.
Join us – we hope to see you here soon!
