Shopping to Meijer, Walmart and Kroger
We currently have a scheduled shuttle run to Meijer on Mondays, Walmart on Wednesdays and Kroger on Fridays with limited seating. This is a first come, first served basis. The shuttle will be leaving the Senior Center at 7:30 a.m. sharp and the return time will be between 9:15 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Same day reservations are unavailable, so please call a minimum of 48 hours ahead to schedule your ride at 313-291-7740.
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 through 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 $15 per year.
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.
Equipment Loan Closet
Our equipment loan closet contains primarily used and donated equipment, available for Taylor residents. Typical items are wheelchairs, shower chairs, bedside commodes, walkers, canes, and high-rise toilet seats. There is no charge for this equipment and you may use it as long as it is needed. You will need to provide identification and a phone number when picking up any items. Because the loan closet inventory is constantly changing, we are unable to provide an accurate list on this site of what is available for loan. Please contact us at 313-291-770 to check for the availability of an item. Donations are gladly accepted.
