Due to COVID-19, the Senior Center is closed until further notice. Staff is available by phone to answer your questions.
The Max E. Muravnick Meriden Senior Center is a safe and comfortable environment where we strive to empower older adults to thrive in our community.
As a multipurpose Senior Center, we are a community facility where older people can meet with one another to fulfill many of their social, physical, emotional and intellectual needs. Our Center is also a focal point for services to older persons which can enhance their dignity, support their independence, and encourage their involvement in the community. Meriden residents age 55 and over are eligible for free membership to the Meriden Senior Center.
