There may be some great resources here, according to the New Haven, CT Community website. If you're looking for advice on locating the right senior center, it may be worth checking out. Here is a breif description of the senior services offered, according to their website: 

The Department of Elderly Services assists those who are 55 and older to be independent and active and to enjoy a great variety of activities.  There are presently 3 Senior Centers offering many choices.  In addition, each Center has an active, non-profit membership association that sponsors its own additional activities.  Each association elects its own leaders and decides for itself what it would like to do.  Some activities are free, some are not.  People may sign for those that are of interest to them.  There are also opportunities to volunteer in ways that range from knitting to tutoring.  Each Senior Center serves lunch at 11:30 am daily. To sign up, please contact the Senior Center of your choice.   Kosher meals are available on request at Atwater Senior Center.  Transportation is available to each of the Senior Centers.
