Senior Services


The Amherst Senior Center and Council on Aging serves and supports older adults from all walks of life. We seek to assist older adults in remaining as independent as possible, while maintaining total wellbeing and dignity. We advocate and offer programs and services to assist with all aspects of life: community building, mental wellness, health, cultural inclusion, volunteer outreach, accessibility, and cost-of-living. We explore new ways to create or adapt programming to meet the needs of seniors of all ages. We also endeavor to advocate, educate, collaborate, and build coalitions within the larger community on behalf of older adults.

The Amherst Senior Center remains committed to meeting the needs of elders in the community. Our office is open and happy to help you! If you have questions on anything aging related, let us be your first point of contact. Call (413) 259-3060. Check out the links on the left side of the page to find out more about our programs and services.
