Welcome Martin's Point


Tom Hall, Scarborough Town Manager, and Carol Rancourt, Vice Chair of the Scarborough Seniors Program Advisory Board joined Martin's Point staff for a ribbon cutting at their new health care center on Route 1.  Built on the site of the former Scarborough Commons office building that was destroyed by fire in September of 2014, the new Martin's Point center will be open for business next week, starting on January 9th.  Along with the new health center, Martin's Point is partnering with the Town to provide access to new community space that was designed as part of the building.  The space will be the new home of the senior lunch program and will provide much needed space for other community activities.


Drop-In Center at Martin's Point for Older Adults

Senior Advisory Board Survey

Did you know that in four years, one quarter of Scarborough's population will be Age 65 and older? 

In order to serve the growing population better, the Senior Advisory Board is looking for your input! Please take a few moments to complete a short online survey that will help board members get a better idea of what is most important to you, what you are interested in, and how Scarborough can become more age-friendly. 


Printed copies of this survey are also available in the Community Services Office at Town Hall.
