If you have never been to the Senior Center, are interested in learning more about us or are a family member of a senior, this is the perfect occasion for you to dip your toe into what we offer. We encourage you to bring a friend, or two, to this casual event. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, September 12th.

Property Tax Savings Programs
The Town of Madison as well as the State of Connecticut have programs to assist residents with tax savings. The following programs are available to eligible residents: Local Tax Relief, Local Tax Deferral, Local Tax Freeze, as well at the State of Connecticut Tax Relief/Circuit Breaker Program. There is also a Veteran’s and a Disability exemption that may be available. There are eligibility and income guidelines for each program. Please contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment. If you intend on filing income taxes for 2018, they must be filed first.
Filing time period: February 1st — May 15th , 2019
Dial A Ride
Another way we are providing improved customer service is by adding Thursdays to the Dial A Ride Transportation schedule. Beginning September 4, 2018 you can book doctor’s appointments, and other personal rides on Thursdays between the hours of 12:30 PM and 6 PM.
Dial A Ride appointments can be made by calling the Senior Center at 203-245-5627. The hours for Dial A Ride Transportation are as follows:
- Mon & Wed 8:30 AM - 4 PM
- Thursday 12:30 PM - 6 PM
- Friday 8:30 AM - 2 PM
We hope these changes will allow us to provide you the highest level of customer service.
Under the State Department of Social Services guidelines, Madison Senior Services has a municipal agent on staff who provides information and referrals for elderly issues, and local and state programs.
Be sure to read the Senior Center Newsletter Trends & Traditions. It's packed full of information and things to do.
2018 Membership Fees
With the New Year we are introducing a Membership Fee for both Madison residents and residents of other towns. Starting January 1st, we will introduce the new fees. Below
is an explanation as to how the fees will work.
MADISON MEMBERS (MM) will pay a $15 annual membership fee and continue to pay for programs and lunch as you currently do.
NON MADISON MEMBERS (NMM) will pay a $20 annual membership fee as well as the $10/nonresident per program fee. Day trips and Overnights will not have a nonresident fee. All seniors will have to pay the membership fee prior to participating in programs or lunch at the Senior Center
The dollars that are collected from the membership fee will go towards continuing to provide energy assistance and meals on wheels to Madison residents in need. The funds will also be used to provide you, the Members, new entertainment, special events and much more throughout the year.
If you are a Madison resident and cannot afford the fee, please contact me or Heather Noblin.
If you have questions regarding this new initiative, please feel free to speak with a staff member.
I hope you have a wonderful 2018. We look forward to navigating the New Year with you and we will be by your side every step of the way.
Happy New Year!
Austin Hall, Director of Senior Services
