Our members love us! Here is a sampling of what they have to say:

“We were planning to move to a neighboring state. Among our criteria of location and price, etc., was the library and the senior center. Of three towns, none had a library or senior center that could compare to Stoneham. Might just stay here after all!!”

“After my wife passed a few years ago, the Senior Center has become a place where I can feel companionship again and I can enjoy the company of new friends. It has helped me move through grief.”

“Coming to the Senior Center gets me out of my chair and I have become reacquainted with old friends!”

“I get a great home-cooked breakfast!”

“It’s nice to come in and see so many friendly smiles!”

“Since I live by myself, I spend a lot of time alone. Coming to the Senior Center helps relieve that lonely feeling and I enjoy the camaraderie of friends.”

“I love to come for the entertainment and fellowship with other people who enjoy doing the same things!”

“It’s an oasis!”

“The Stoneham Senior Center gets me up and out. The center has many activities that interest me. I meet many people, men and women, who welcome me. I don’t live in Stoneham but I find it is best suited for me.”

“I enjoy the activities such as walking and the social interaction with other people. I also feel safe here.”

“The center has afforded me the opportunity to make acquaintances who are now good friends. The energy of others here inspires me to join in activities I enjoy thoroughly. The staff is friendly and accommodating and make all feel welcome.”

“Love, friendship, understanding, help, guidance, and opportunities. Social activities, nutrition, exercise, games and learning crafts.” 

“Professional and legal help. Personal care, hairdresser and often free item picks. Low cost and no cost options. The barn is a weekly shopping experience, and movies are always an option. Keeps me healthy, wealthy and wise!”

“I love coming to the Stoneham Senior Center. I enjoy the fitness programs with Alana, walking and talking with other seniors, and line dancing, which gives me stability. Meeting Howie is such a boost because with Parkinson’s Disease, he has accomplished so much, and he is an inspiration to all with his accomplishments. I have met a lot of wonderful people and feel so much better for their sociability.”
