Welcome

Services for the Elderly is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization located at the rear of the Farmington Community/Senior Center. We are dedicated to Farmingtonís older citizens by helping them remain independent, productive and at home through programs and services such as Meals-on-Wheels, Friendly Visitors, Friendly Shoppers, transportation to medical appointments and by loaning donated, used medical equipment to those in need. We also provide information on other services available so our older citizens and their families know where to go if assistance beyond what we can provide is needed.  Click Here to download our brochure.

   

Help Services for the Elderly Share the Love
with Vulnerable Seniors This Year
 

 Exciting news! For the eleventh year running, the Meals on Wheels network is participating in the Subaru Share the Love Event. Over the past ten years, Subaru and its retailers have helped Meals on Wheels to deliver nearly 2 million meals nationwide to seniors in need. 

 HEREíS HOW IT WORKS 

You might not be in the market to purchase a new car, but if you are, please look into the Subaru Share the Love Event to learn more. This November 15, 2018, through January 2, 2019, for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased, Subaru will donate $250 to the customerís choice of participating charities. Meals on Wheels is one of four national participating charities and has been since the inception of the event. Through this event, as a member of Meals on Wheels America, Services for the Elderly will receive a share of the donation from Subaru vehicles sold in Connecticut. 

If youíre not shopping for a new vehicle, you can still help by spreading the word to your family and friends. This holiday season you can ensure our senior neighbors are not forgotten when you buy or lease a new Subaru and select Meals on Wheels as your charity of choice.
