ABOUT THE COUNCIL ON AGING

The Council on Aging’s mission is to foster an atmosphere of wellness during the aging process among Medfield's senior population. We address the emotional, social, physical and often spiritual needs of older individuals and their families. Our goal is to enhance our member’s quality of life and promote independence through our varied programs, active social events, wide services and confidential referrals.  Visit us at The Center or call us to learn more about how we can meet the needs of our elder community members during their life journey.

Special Announcements

DRIVERS WANTED


Are you interested in giving back to the community? Consider being a Medical Ride Volunteer for the COA.  Susan Bernstein is looking to increase the list of volunteers that provide transportation to medical appointments.  As our population ages, they are no longer driving which causes difficulty in getting to these much-needed             appointments.  If you are interested in volunteering a few hours per month, then call Susan at 508-359-3665.


INTERESTED IN BEING PART OF THE COUNCIL ON AGING BOARD?


Gwen Centore recently submitted her resignation from the COA Board after 6 dedicated years of service.  We are most grateful and appreciative of all her support and efforts during this time. Gwen provided a balance to the board with common sense and thoughtful guidance and advice. The COA is looking to fill the vacant seat and for anyone interested in considering this position, please see Roberta for a “Guide for Board Members” from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs.



WINTER WEATHER POLICY 


With winter upon us it is important to remind you that when the Medfield schools are closed due to inclement weather, the Center at Medfield is closed and all programs are cancelled.  If the schools have a 2-hour delay, the Center will also have a 2-hour delay (opening at 11 a.m. instead of 9 a.m.)  If there is a snow storm on a Saturday, the Saturday program will be cancelled.  Also, all  scheduled programs are weather permitting.  If we determine that it is unsafe for trips, activities and/or transportation, the Center can cancel any program at any time. It is important to clearly print   your name and phone number on sign up sheets, so we have easy access to inform you of any changes in our schedule.
           



Saturday Hours at the Center

The Center at Medfield has grown tremendously over the last ten years. As home to the Medfield Council on Aging, the Center’s presence has evolved into an active and vibrant community, offering over 900 seniors an extensive and broad range of activities, resources and events. A grant was submitted to MetroWest Health Foundation in October 2017 for funding to open our doors on Saturdays. And it was approved! Plan to visit the Center for programming each Saturday from 10:00 a.m.— 3:00 p.m.
