DIAL A RIDE:

The Town of Somers offers transportation services to residents 60+ or those who are on Social Security Disability. Our service area includes Somers, Enfield and to medical appointments at Johnson Memorial Hospital in Stafford. The hours of availability are Monday thru Friday 8am-4pm.

 We provide transportation to medical appointments, the Somers Senior Center, shopping/errands, and other activities. We ask that you call us a minimum of 1 week in advance to book your ride. Please note that there may be times when transportation is unavailable or canceled due to inclement weather. Our transportation service follows the Somers Public Schools . Therefore, if schools are delayed or closed, our service will be delayed or closed as well. There is no fee required to utilize this service. However, donations are very much appreciated and help to offset our costs. Donations can be made at the Senior Center via cash or checks made payable to "Town of Somers Dial-a-Ride".

 

CHOICES COUNSELING

 The Somers Senior Center offers CHOICES counseling. CHOICES stands for Connecticut's program for Health insurance assistance, Outreach, Information & Referral, Counseling and Eligibility Screening. Free and objective information, counseling and assistance is available to older adults and persons with disabilities enabling them to understand and exercise their rights, access and receive benefits to which they are entitled, and make more informed decisions about quality of life issues. CHOICES is also an excellent Medicare resource for individuals who are "New to Medicare", for example, just turning 65 years old or eligible for Medicare because of a qualifying illness or disability. Trained CHOICES staff can help consumers navigate life's stages while reducing the stress and confusion. Counselors do not sell insurance.

If you or someone you know is homebound and unable to grocery shop/prepare meals, they may be eligible for Meals on Wheels. The program is available to residents of Somers who are considered homebound for a fee of $4.00 per hot meal and $3.00 per cold meal. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
