The Max E. Muravnick Meriden Senior Center is a safe and comfortable environment where we strive to empower older adults to thrive in our community.
As a multipurpose Senior Center, we are a community facility where older people can meet with one another to fulfill many of their social, physical, emotional and intellectual needs. Our Center is also a focal point for services to older persons which can enhance their dignity, support their independence, and encourage their involvement in the community.

On Jan. 28, 2013 the Senior Center unveiled four vibrant photographs depicting autumn colors in Meriden placed on the wall of the Hanover St. entryway. These striking photographs were taken on the Linear Trail near Red Bridge and in Giuffrida Park by Meriden photographer Ray Gawlak, and then enlarged to 32 x 48 inches and mounted on canvas in Colorado prior to their arrival at the Senior Center. Our thanks to Ray Gawlak for the stunning and colorful photographs he provided.
