Our Senior Centres
There are 12 Senior Centres located throughout the Municipality of
Chatham-Kent. These centres have their own unique names and provide similar
services for seniors located in their communities.
What They Have To offer
Senior Centres serve adults over 50 years of age and their services can
include recreational programs, social activities etc. The Centres are a place
for socializing and provide members an opportunity to become involved in a range
of recreational and leisure activities.
Senior Centres are places that promote social relationships that prevent
isolation, and where participants can get individual help from visiting
professionals for services such as foot care, and educational information
related to various health care problems.
A Community for our Residents
These Centres have become well-established meeting places for seniors within
their respective communities and act as an ideal place for sharing information
throughout the local community.
All of the Senior Centres’ executive members have been brought together so
that they may share ideas and work together. Through our help, we have fostered
their coming together on a regular basis to arrange joint social events.
These self-directed meetings have also provided seniors with a forum where
they can build supportive networks. We hold regular meetings with the Senior
Centres to discuss and help them resolve issues, provide training opportunities,
and act as a liaison to other divisions of the Municipality that may be of help
