Senior Center COVID-19 Update


The Mansfield Senior Center is closed until further notice. Although our building is closed to the public, Senior Center staff are working daily - safely on site and remotely - to ensure Seniors in our community have food, essential transportation, online programming and important information. We will continue to post updates to the Senior Center webpage and our Facebook page - please help us get this information out to as many people as possible by sharing our posts with your neighbors, friends and family. If you or someone you know needs any assistance at all, please contact us at 860-429-0262 or the Human Services office at 860-429-3315.

Help with Errands and Household Chores through UR Community Cares

UR COMMUNITY CARES (UCC) is a secure online resource that connects volunteers with community members ages 70 and older or 18+ and have a physical injury or disability and are in need of assistance with household errands and other tasks. Services include (but are not limited to) shopping and drop-off of food and other essentials including medical supplies, pet walking, taking out the trash, yard clean-up and anything else that provides peace of mind in these difficult times. UCC is up-to-date and compliant with the CDC’s COVID-19 protocols. It’s free for residents or groups to enroll online, complete a background check, and then schedule assistance for household tasks/errands, yard work and companionship visits (currently via remote/distant contact). For more information, visit UR Community Cares, call 860-430-4557 or email info@urcommunitycares.org.
