Prior to 2013, seniors in Holyoke gathered in the basement of the War Memorial Building, the old site of the Council on Aging. Our new Senior Center is bright, colorful, welcoming and has quickly filled with seniors, their families, and caregivers, taking part in a multitude of activities. Visit our center if you need a lunch spot or an exercise haven, to take advantage of our social services or transportation, or simply as an excuse to get out of the house for the day. We pride ourselves on being open and friendly, diverse and accommodating.

Planning Your Visit
As of September 7, masks are required for anyone entering the building. Masks will be available at the Front Desk if you need one during your visit. Consistent with CDC guidance, the City does not consider face shields to be an adequate substitute for face masks due to the possibility that droplets could travel under or to the side of the shield. We also urge visitors to continue practicing social distancing measures. Properly worn masks have been and are still required to use our transportation service.
If you are unable to wear a mask, or feel safer at home:
-- We can assist you with services by phone or email.
-- We urge you to consider taking part in our Zoom classes.
-- You are welcome to order lunch through our Grab & Go service, though a mask is required for the short interaction with staff and volunteers.
We're looking for two people to join us in helping make the Senior Center a success. If you or anyone you know wants to serve their aging community as either a Driver or a Kitchen Supervisor, take a look a the job postings on the City of Holyoke Personnel page. To apply, visit indeed.com or send a letter of interest and resume by email only* to: Personnel@Holyoke.org.
*Phone calls and walk-in inquiries are discouraged and will be told to apply online.
