Frequently Asked Questions

Can anyone join the Senior Center and Fitness Programming?

As we receive grants and federal funding, our senior center programming is available to all seniors over the age of 60. There is no joining process or joining fee. Our center is open and people come on their own free will. We do, however, require you to register with us for statistical purposes only.

Will my information be confidential?

One word, absolutely! Anonymity is very important and a priority.

Is transportation available for medical appointments?

Yes. The City of Everett Council on Aging contracts with SCM Transportation (Door to Door) Service. This service provides transportation to and from medical appointments. You can book a ride by calling 617-625-1191 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. SCM requires at least 2 days advance notice. Although there is no charge, donations are always accepted.
