Two new programs are available for senior citizens in Danbury. See if one or both might be helpful for you or someone you know.
Friendly Visitor Program: Do you know someone who might like a weekly call or visit? Maybe you yourself would like one. Elmwood Hall / Danbury Senior Center is partnering with an organization called Golden Opportunities of Newtown to bring you such a visit. The staff of Golden Opportunities would love to hear from you and spend time with you over the phone or in person. Call them directly at 203-426-3301. This is a free program paid for by a private grant, and is for Danbury residents only.
Home Repair Safety Program: Through a grant and in partnership with Family and Children’s Aid, the “Home Repair Safety” program is now available to Danbury seniors. If you have a safety concern in a home you own, such as: light bulb needs to be changed, need a new smoke detector, need a sturdy kitchen step stool, need a support grab bar in your bathroom, etc., call Elmwood Hall / Danbury Senior Center at 203-797-4686 for a referral to this new program. Income limits are $41,000 for a single person and $45,000 for a couple.
