What We Do

St Patrick Senior Center is the largest health, wellness and activities center for Detroiters over 55 years old. We have been a mainstay of Midtown since our founding in 1973.

Our center has long been known as a placed filled with fun, food and friendship – and even through the pandemic we have continued to provide so many services to the people who depend on us. Here is just some of what St. Pat has long offered:

• Nutritious meals served in our cafeteria, often to 200 or more gathered together in fellowship. Offered carryout style only for the last couple years, as of July 25 meals are now available Monday through Friday, and can be enjoyed in the dining room or in the park outside - or taken home
• An onsite clinic, plus classes, workshops and discussions aimed at helping members maintain good health. Many are now offered online.
• Transportation to and from medical appointments, dialysis, etc.
• Assistance with benefits navigation – a major issue for many older adults
• Coordination of in-home services like respite care, repairs and light housekeeping
• Dozens of dance and exercise programs – including Hustle, Chicago Step, and even a Belly Dance group!
• Fun-filled activities ranging from craft making to our own gospel choir

Over the past couple years, we have also established new programs for home bound Detroiters - including grocery shopping, plus distribution of vegetables, canned goods, hygiene and isolation kits, and other staples. We've even helped 101 seniors get new laptops, donated by the United Way of Southeast Michigan - part of an overall effort to help our members enhance their digital and online skills.

At St. Patrick Senior Center we are proud to provide a “home away from home” for hundreds of people over 55, all year round - a community where everyone is welcome!
