Senior Services

Madison Senior Services strives to improve the quality of life for the senior citizens of Madison by providing services and connecting seniors, family members or caregivers to state and local services and resources.

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 - including the lunch menu!
