INTRODUCTION

The City of Westland's Senior Resources Department develops and implements a comprehensive program designed to address the changing needs of older adults in the community. The Senior Resources Department is located in the Westland Friendship Center at 1119 N. Newburgh Road. The Center is a focal point for residents seeking information and referral to programs offered through the Center and to other organizations specializing in older adult services.  The Center not only provides recreational and social activities but provides many programs and services aimed to aid our residents who are 50 years and older to successfully live the happiest, healthiest, most fulfilling life possible.  Visitors are welcome

Two groups of active members participate in governing the Friendship Center's goals, policies and concerns: the Advisory Council and the Commission on Aging
 
Advisory Council:
The Advisory Council is a group of selected individuals representing their various groups within the City and the Friendship Center. The council discusses older adult needs, provides feedback from individual groups, and presents issues to the Commission on Aging. The group meets the fourth Thursday at 10:00 a.m. every other month starting in January.  Meetings are held in the Friendship Center conference room.  There will not be a meeting in July.
 
Commission on Aging:
The Commission on Aging is an eleven-person body appointed by the Mayor which advises the department on the needs of older adults. The Commission advises the Senior Resources department in the concerns and needs of older adults.  The Commission meets the fourth Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. every other month starting in January.  Meetings are held in the Friendship Center conference room.  There will not be a meeting in July.

 

Memberships:
Friendship Center memberships are from January to January for a $12 annual fee.  For those who wish to take advantage of the fully equipped exercise room, an exercise room badge can be purchased for an additional $25 and is also good from January to January.  If members have friends or family they would like to bring with them - we are always happy to include those living outside of Westland for the same fee.
