Welcome to the City of Taylor Senior Services homepage where you’re just a click away from gathering information on our activities, trips, events, and our monthly newsletter. We are currently working on our website to allow for some pre-registration with payments for our senior programs and events. So look out for these soon! If you need assistance or additional information, call us at 313-291-7740.
Shuttles to Kroger and Meijer
We currently have a scheduled shuttle run to Kroger and Meijer with limited seating. Due to the short time frame for shopping and spacing on the bus, these runs will be limited to 4 people a day. This is a first come, first served basis. Both stores are offering senior hours from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. The shuttle will be leaving the Senior Center at 6:30 a.m. sharp and the return time will be between 8:15 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Same day reservations are unavailable, so please call a day ahead to schedule your ride at 313-291-7740.
The bus driver will be wearing a mask and gloves. Each patron would be able to be separated by at least 6 feet while on the bus. In keeping social distancing, the first pick up will sit in the back of the bus, the next pick up would sit in the next furthest seat and so on. Returning home, loading the bus would be the same process. The bus will be cleaned after each run.
Transportation for Doctor Visits
With a 24-hour notice, we take Taylor seniors to and from Taylor-based medical appointments. This is a very important part of our transportation program. This service is provided five days a week, for $2 per appointment.
This is where the fun begins. Our trips are planned by volunteers, each specializing in different areas: theater, plays, the ever-popular casino trip, restaurant roundup, shopping trips, and quilting shows, just to name a few! You think of it, and we will try it!
Picks up Taylor seniors at their home and brings them to the center free of charge. See our Activities Page to see all you can do once you get here! We also offer a different shopping trip each day: Meijer (Mondays), Walmart (Tuesdays), and Kroger (Thursdays).
Friends of the Ford Senior Center
All of our activities take money, so we formed a fund-raising group called The Friends of the Ford Senior Center, which is a 501(c)3 organization. This allows us new ways to raise funds for the center and opens many new doors for better discounts for our senior programs. If you would like to become a member of this organization, please stop by the center and join. The fee is $12 per year, or $100 for a lifetime membership.
Hall & Pavilion Rentals
The Ford Senior Center offers both hall and pavilion rental. With a full working kitchen, the banquet hall affords many possibilities for catered affairs. For a more casual gathering, the outdoor pavilion provides shelter, lighting, and a sound system in an open-air setting overlooking the beautiful grounds. Ask about special rates for seniors and Taylor residents. For more details on hall and pavilion rentals, call 734-287-1633 or call 734-286-1655.
