About Us

Everyone ages. It is an inherent property of life. As our bodies and minds develop over time, we adapt to these changes by modifying our decisions and actions. The later years of life can be especially challenging, but the Williamston Area Senior Center is here to help. At the Williamston Area Senior Center, we listen to the needs of our members in order to understand their limitations and discuss potential solutions. We work with our community members to customize options that will help them lead the lives they want.

Daily Activities

Our hearts and brains are constantly changing, and just like the muscles in our body, they can lose strength if we don’t exercise them enough. It is especially important for seniors to stay physically and mentally active on a daily basis, which is why we offer a variety of classes to help get your body and mind moving. They’re fun and enjoyable for everyone, and a great way to meet our other residents.

Finally, we ask that you be a good neighbor and keep in contact and/or phone your seniors neighbor to make sure they are ok and not in need of any service.

Let's end ageism, Ashton Applewhite

TED Talks April 2017

It's ageism, a prejudice that pits us against our future selves -- and each other. Ashton Applewhite urges us to dismantle the dread and mobilize against the last socially acceptable prejudice. "Aging is not a problem to be fixed or a disease to be cured," she says. "It is a natural, powerful, lifelong process that unites us all."
