Senior Services

 

Stratford Senior Services’ mission is to enhance the quality of life within the senior community by providing services with professionalism and a commitment to excellence.


The Baldwin Center provides a place for social connection, learning and a healthy, active lifestyle. The Baldwin Center is remains closed to the public. No definitive re-opening date has been set due to renovations and the ever-changing COVID-19 public health crisis.  Senior Services staff members are in every week day and planning what we need to do to welcome everyone back safely, such as establishing a cleaning and disinfecting plan, training staff, developing new policies, and ordering materials.  We are closely following the guidance from the CT Department of Public Health, Stratford Health Department and the Governor's Reopen Connecticut.  We are disappointed that we won't be sharing the holidays with you in person this year, but we would love to hear from you.  Give us a call or drop us a line.  Better yet, if we don't have your email, please send it to seniorservices@townofstratford.com so that we can send you timely information and you can register for virtual programs.
