Senior Citizens of Year
What we do:
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. It also administers and operates the Nantucket Center for Elder Affairs at the Saltmarsh Senior Center and was the original co-sponsored the Island's Adult Community Day Care Center. 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.
Council on Aging Board's Mission:
1. Identify the total needs of the elderly population.
2. Inform the community and enlist the support and participation of all citizens concerning these needs.
3. Design, promote, or implement services for the elderly in the community.
4. Promote and support other programs which are designed to assist the elderly in the community.
