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 spend time engaged in meaningful activities. They are staffed with caring professionals who have experience working with the senior population.

If you or your family member is looking for activities to stay active and engaged in their community, they should visit one of the centers.
