mission statement
The mission of the Town of Yarmouth's Division of Senior Services is to foster an Age-Friendly community that enhances the quality of life for the Town's older adults (60+) and their families by providing programs and services in a supportive and accessible environment that contributes to vital aging through mental, physical, and financial wellness

Messages from the Director of Seniors Services

With November and December comes a time of reflection and gratitude.  We are thankful for our military veterans.   We are grateful for our families and holiday celebrations that bring us together and for volunteers and organizations that host events that scratch at the loneliness found in our isolated, homebound and older persons without family.   We have been busy mapping services provided by our Churches, Non-governmental and Governmental organizations to help us identify gaps and develop a new “Villages” model for aging in our community.   We have been intentionally innovating new intergenerational programming and rejuvenating or highlighting existing intergenerational programming as community development with purposeful engagement.   Happy Holidays Yarmouth!  I look forward to seeing you at the FOYCOA Polar Plunge on January 1st…and together we can focus on 2018 with a little guidance from the opening line found in the Peace Prayer that is welcomed across all religious and non-religious people:  Make me an instrument of your peace.                                                                        - Kathi
