Inclement Weather Closing
The Granby Senior Center follows the Granby Public School closing and delayed opening decision. Tune into Channel 3. If the Granby Public Schools are closed for the day than the Granby Senior Center cancels all activities, events and transportation. If the Granby Public Schools announce a delayed opening than the Granby Senior Center is open as usual. Use proper judgement. If the roads and/or weather are bad please do not attempt to venture out!
I need a walker and other medical equipment. Can the Senior Center help?
Yes. We have a volunteer-run program--Durable Medical Loaner Closet. Call the Senior Center at 860-844-5350 and speak with a member of staff. Your message is passed to the medical loaner closet coordianator. You will get a return phone call usually within 24-48 hours from one of the volunteers. Arrangements for picking up the equipment are made directly with that volunteer. The closet is located at Holcomb Farm.
Equipment such as canes, walkers, wheelchairs, raised toilet seats, shower chairs and the like are available. Items not available would include items such as crutches, braces, anything with fabric/cushion/material.
I have medical equipment to donate. Can it be dropped off at the Senior Center.
Call us and we will make arrangements for the medical loaner closet coordinator to have a volunteer reach out to you. Unfortunately, we cannot take medical equipment at the Senior Center--so please do not drop off medical equipment at our office.
