The Cheektowaga Department of Senior Services is operated by 6 FULL-TIME and 25 PART-TIME EMPLOYEES and numerous senior volunteers.  We are on 24 HOUR CALL with the CHEEKTOWAGA POLICE DEPARTMENT for any emergency that arises with our elderly residents.

 

A full program of OUTREACH SERVICES is available including assistance in filing for medicare and medicaid, food stamps, heat assistance, income tax preparation, housing, nursing home placement, aid in setting up home maker services, visiting nurses and other health related services and referral to the proper agency when needed.

A full schedule of RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES is provided at the Senior Center since its construction in 1982.  This schedule is printed monthly at no cost to the Town.  Over 45,000 elders registered in our daily log in the past year.

THIRTY-FIVE SENIOR CITIZEN GROUPS are based throughout the Town in churches, schools and libraries to serve the local neighborhoods.  Assistance is offered to all groups to implement their programming.  Each group receives a subsidy for programming from the Town of Cheektowaga.  A meeting of the group leaders is scheduled every two months to disseminate information to the group members, to exchange ideas and to conduct seminars on various topics.

The Town of Cheektowaga is committed to the development of programs and services of the unique needs of its Senior residents.  This commitment is rooted in recognition of the significant contributions which Senior Citizens have made to the Town.
