It was determined early on by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) that older adults and people with underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for developing more serious complications from the COVID-19 illness. The Town of Amherst puts the safety and wellbeing of its seniors first and foremost. The Amherst Center for Senior Services will not be opening during the summer months while there remains risks for spreading illness in group settings.
The Center has added many virtual programs and classes to serve our members remotely. Please see the Newsletter on the right of this page for our current offerings.
2020 is a monumental year for the Amherst Center of Senior Services. We will be celebrating 20 years in our building at 370 John James Audubon Parkway.
Since 2000, we have added:
- Wellness Room
- Computer Room
- Audubon Cafe
- Food Pantry
Rooms were not the only things that were added to our organization. We represent 10,000 plus older adults in the Western New York area.
On behalf of the entire staff of the Center, we look forward to the next 20 years and working towards consistently updating our offerings to meet the needs of the older adults in our community.
The Center assists approximately 700 older adults on a daily basis.
Your membership entitles you to classes, clubs, events, programs and use of our 53,000 square foot facility. Our facility includes an art gallery, the Audubon Cafe, a billiard room, a card room, a gift shop, a library and weight room.
