Offering services to older adults and their families to promote wellness, healthy aging and independence.
The Division of Senior Services offers a variety of programs to senior citizens at five senior centers throughout the City of Santa Fe. Our services are essential parts of a long-term care system that enables seniors to remain active within their community while continuing to live independently and comfortably within their own home.
If you are age 60 or over, we invite and encourage you to utilize and participate in these various services. Most services and/or activities are free and some ask for a suggested donation. These programs are here for you and we take pride in ensuring the highest quality of service is provided. So please stop by - we look forward to meeting you!

register for services
Individuals age 60 or over who participate at any City of Santa Fe Senior Center or utilize the Division of Senior Services curriculum must register with our Division. We secure program funding each time a registered senior prints his or her name on our various sign-in sheets e.g. meals, health screenings, fitness activities, transportation, in-home assistance, etc., which allows us to continue providing services.
Registration is done at the Mary Esther Gonzales (MEG) Senior Center, located at 1121 Alto Street, Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. When you register, a staff member will fill out a form with you, which asks for your date of birth, the last four digits (only) of your Social Security number, an emergency contact name and phone number and has a brief assessment to be completed.
ELIGIBILITY FOR SENIOR SERVICES REGISTRATION
Participants must meet the following criteria, per the Older Americans Act:
Be 60 years of age or over; or be the legal spouse of a member age 60 or over, residing at the same address; or for meals only, be disabled and living at Luisa, Pasatiempo, or Villa Consuelo (senior housing).
