Frequently Asked Questions, Senior Services


Q. What is a senior?
A. Senior Services programs and services are open to anyone 55 years and older. Some of our sports/exercise activities are for those 50 and older. If you are interested in computer classes, you are eligible to take the Senior Computer Tech Center classes when you are 50+. Resource assistance and counseling services are available to adults of any age when the individual is inquiring about or concerned with an older person.

Q. I'm not a senior but would like to participate. Can I?
A. Some activities, such as our Friday Afternoon Concerts, are open to all ages. If there is space on a trip or in an activity and it is after the cut-off date for that activity, we do welcome non-seniors to register, paying the non-resident rate. If you are a spouse needing to accompany someone who has limitations, you are welcome to register at any time, paying the resident rate. Call Saryna at 303-651-8442 if you are inquiring about a particular trip or class or have questions.

Q. Do I pay the resident or non-resident fee?
A. A good way to determine this is - if you receive City of Longmont trash service. Generally, this means you live within the established City limits.

Q. I don't live in Longmont but would like to participate in things through the Longmont Senior Center. Can I?
A. Yes, we welcome you to participate in anything that is offered. If there is a fee for an activity you are interested in, you would pay the non-resident fee.

Q. How do I join the Senior Center?
A. There is no cost to join the Senior Center. We do not require any membership. The Center is open to anyone 55+.

Q. Are there scholarships available?
A. Yes. The Friends of the Longmont Senior Center, Inc. have set aside funds to assist older persons (55+) in participating in various activities.

Q. I am new to the community. How do I become familiar with what you have to offer?
A. We have a "Get Acquainted" gathering every other month. It's a great time to come down and get acquainted with others new to Longmont or new to the Senior Center. Staff members are on hand to familiarize you with our building and what's happening for older adults here in Longmont. Call 303-651-8411 to register for our next get-together. You are also welcome to drop in any time for a tour and to pick up our GO catalog that comes out quarterly and gives you information on all our trips, classes, activities and services offered through the Senior Center.
