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 Monday through Friday 8:30AM - 4:30PM.  Please call 781-545-8722 and listen to be directed to the appropriate 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 classes and programs .  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 applications for financial and benefit assistance, including SNAP (Food Stamps support), Fuel Assistance, Housing, Insurance as well as connection to Meals on Wheels and the Food Pantry.  We have SHINE volunteer counselors to assist with information on Medicare and other health insurance needs.  We have local attorneys rotating for appointments one time per month, resources for caregiving, and monthly appointments with the Town Nurse to check your blood pressure or answer other questions.  We offer limited monthly appointments with providers in Reflexology, Reiki and Chair Massage for a modest cost.
