Cranston Senior Enrichment Center

The Cranston Department of Senior Services provides comprehensive services to all Cranston Seniors and their families. Our programs assist, inform, entertain, and enrich the lives of individuals fifty-five years of age and older. Our nationally recognized and accredited department, which is comprised of six divisions, aims to enhance the quality of life for Cranston’s older adults.


Welcome back!!  We have missed you and are delighted to have you join us again.


You’ll notice various changes in the way the center looks as well as new practices and protocols.  We understand these changes may be difficult and we are here to support you.  Please be patient with us as we navigate the complexities of our “new normal” to ensure everyone feels safe and secure.


Although we would have liked for things to have remained unchanged; we must adapt to the changes of our current circumstances.  


Here are some things WE have implemented based on required protocols by the RI Department of Health:

  • review symptom checklist and temperature check upon arrival
  • social distance markers on the floors throughout the building
  • plexiglass installed at reception desk, lunch desk, lunch counter and offices
  • signage (visual reminders)
  • new limits on the number of people allowed to gather (dining room & communal areas) at one time
  • programs/activities offered and format may be different

Here are some things we expect YOU to implement to help keep our center safe:

  • stay home if you feel sick
  • wash your hands often, and for the recommended 20 seconds
  • stay socially distant (6 feet apart) when moving through the building
  • wear face mask or cloth face covering in the building
  • be considerate of others (remember, we’re all in this together)


Thank you for your patience and cooperation.  We look forward to seeing you!!
