Services for seniors
For Wilton’s seniors, their families and friends, the Wilton Senior Services booklet published by the Wilton Department of Social Services is invaluable. This booklet was printed through the generosity of The Wilton Rotary Club, and it is bursting with names and numbers helpful to Wilton seniors. During the coming weeks, this column will highlight selected services included in the booklet. If you need a copy, call Sharon Powers in the Social Services office at 203-834-6238. This week will focus on Care Management Services, Elderly Housing and Nursing Homes, and Assisted Living Facilities.
