NECC offers several programs for senior citizens:

 

Care Car: Need a ride to a doctor, hospital, grocery store, or outing? Our volunteers will get you there! Just give us a call and we'll do our best to find you a ride. Most trips are in the local area to doctors in Millerton, Amenia, Sharon and Lakeville, but our volunteers may be able to take you to Poughkeepsie, Hartford, Torrington, or other nearby cities.

 

Rides are free but we welcome your donation to help maintain the car and sustain the program. Please call at least 4 days in advance, if possible, to schedule your ride. More details about the Care Car.

 

Exercise Class: Increase your strength, balance, and flexibility with light weights and gentle stretching at our free classes (held every Tuesday and Thursday at 9 am). This is a volunteer-run program, sponsored by the Dutchess County Division of Senior Services.
