The mission of the Scituate Council on Aging is to identify the unique needs and interests of the senior members of our community and to implement programs that will enhance quality of life, foster independence, and ensure physical and emotional well-being for a growing aging community.

We are open to the public and available to assist with your needs.  Please call 781-545-8722 and listen to be directed to a staff person.  Please leave any contact information that is helpful, including cell phone and e-mail if you have it.  See the Classes and Activities Menu tab for our onsite classes and programs at this time.  Many programs, including lunch, require advance sign-ups.

 

Outreach Services

Outreach Services are offered to the senior (60+) and disabled adult population of Scituate to assist with SNAP (Food Stamps support) and connection to other resources such as Meals on Wheels and the Food Pantry.  We have SHINE volunteers to assist with information on Medicare and other health insurance needs.  We have local attorneys rotating for appointments one time per month, as well as resources for caregiving.
