About the Committee

The Saltmarsh Senior Center is the social and recreational place for active people 60 years and over to enjoy themselves. The council acts on behalf of elderly residents, 60 years and older. The council is responsible for addressing the needs of Nantucket elders. We provide programs for senior citizens that will enhance their quality of life; develop and carry out programs for them that encompass nutritional, educational, recreational, and social needs. We provide information and lectures regarding health care, legal services, social security and changes to federal and state laws which pertain to the elderly.
