Medicare for Beginners

Transportation for Doctor Visits

With a 48-hour notice, we take Taylor seniors to and from Taylor-based medical appointments. This is a very important part of our transportation program. This service is provided on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, at a $2 charge.  Appointment times need to be scheduled between 9 a.m. -1 p.m.  

Friends of the Ford Senior Center

All of our activities take money, so we formed a fund-raising group called The Friends of the Ford Senior Center, which is a 501(c)3 organization. This allows us new ways to raise funds for the center and opens many new doors for better discounts for our senior programs. If you would like to become a member of this organization, please stop by the center and join. The fee is $12 per year, or $100 for a lifetime membership.

Hall & Pavilion Rentals

The Ford Senior Center offers both hall and pavilion rental. With a full working kitchen, the banquet hall affords many possibilities for catered affairs. For a more casual gathering, the outdoor pavilion provides shelter, lighting, and a sound system in an open-air setting overlooking the beautiful grounds.  For more details on hall and pavilion rentals, call 734-287-1633 or call 734-286-1655.
