If you have answered "NO" to any of the following questions, please call (860) 399-2029 or email cburks@westbrookct.us

During our closure, Amber and I will make every effort to check in on our Senior residents here in Westbrook and our neighboring towns. Since we are limited to only having phone numbers of Seniors who participate in our programs, please forward to us the contact information of a Senior in need or a Senior who just needs to hear a friendly voice.
If you know of any Seniors who might have questions about or require services during our closure, please email me: cburks@westbrookct.us or call (860)399-2029. Email and voicemail are checked daily.
Having never dealt with a health crisis as large as this and strict Executive Orders for Congregate settings, we will do our best to make sure our area Seniors are well.

Thank you,

Courtney Burks
