The mission of the Scituate Council on Aging is to identify the unique needs and interests of the senior members of the Scituate community and to implement programs that will enhance their quality of life, foster independence, and ensure the physical and emotional well-being of 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 Online Activities menu tab for our virtual and outdoor programs at this time.
