Aging and Disability Services

To be active in our programs, a person must be at least 60 years old, reside in Lexington and be independent in all areas of personal care and personal safety.

Our senior centers offer a safe and affordable place to engage in meaningful activities. The staff is caring professionals who have experience working with the senior population. To learn more about our programs and activities at all locations, check out our monthly newsletter, The Messenger.
