Benefits


For caregivers

The Center’s programs provide needed respite care and added support and care management of a family’s loved one by a highly-qualified and experienced team. Services can also delay or prevent the need for placement in a long-term care facility, reduction in hospital/emergency department visits, and cost-effective and convenient health care.

Each month, a Caregivers Support Group is offered at the Center on the third Wednesday. Participants families and other residents of the community are welcome to attend. Please register 24 hours in advance by calling 781-246-2820 or if you need more information.


For participants

Our comprehensive programs and services help reduce stresses and fears and help improve a participant’s physical stamina. Participants renew interests, express having more vitality, and develop a renewed sense of purpose. The center’s programming also help participants improve mental functioning, continue independence in the community, improve their nutritional status, allow for re-socialization, and assist them in developing new friendships.

Diverse activities such as computer and video games, WII Fitness, gardening, pet therapy, and restorative exercise are offered daily. A hot lunch and morning and afternoon snacks are provided without charge. The menus meet the American Dietetic Association standards for older adults.
