Services & Activities

Information, Referral & Outreach to Elders

Daily, we assist seniors and their family members with their concerns and needs. Outreach staff will meet with clients and/or caregivers to listen, support, and provide information and referrals. Outreach staff also reach out to seniors in the community who are not familiar with Council on Aging services and resources. Call today to be connected with outreach or social work staff at 978-921-6017.


Meals-on-Wheels are delivered year-round, Monday through Friday, under the auspices of SeniorCare, Inc. for elders who satisfy the evaluation criteria. For information, call SeniorCare, Inc at 866-927-1050.
