Mission Statement
The West Boylston Council on Aging will identify, promote and provide for the needs of the elder citizens of West Boylston through services which consist of community participation as well as social, nutritional, health, recreational and educational programs.

The Council on Aging was established by town meeting vote on April 8, 1974 under Article 20. It was voted to establish a Council on Aging consisting of not less than three nor more than seven members who shall be registered voters of the town and who shall be appointed for the purpose of coordinating or carrying out programs designed to meet the problems of the aging in coordination with programs of the Commission on Aging established under Section 73 of Chapter 6 of the General Laws of the State of Massachusetts.

The Council On Aging consists of 7 residents who are appointed by the Town Administrator to 3-year terms.


Department Overview
The West Boylston Council on Aging is a human service department of the town, which serves the needs and issues of West Boylston seniors, age 60 and over, or families with senior issues.  

The Council on Aging offers a range of programs, services and activities, such as:
transportation, information and referral, durable medical equipment exchange,  medical screenings, free legal and financial clinics, SHINE, fuel assistance, Meals on Wheels, daily lunch, exercise classes, computer lab, billiards, Bingo, Wii Bowling, art classes, card groups, social groups, special events and trips.

The department receives funding by local tax dollars appropriated at the Annual Town Meeting.  The Friends of the West Boylston Council on Aging is the fundraising arm of the organization that can also supplement the department’s budget and offer other support.  Donations that are received go through the Friends organization and allow the Senior Center to mail the monthly newsletter, purchase equipment and pay for other special events or needs.  

The West Boylston Council on Aging also works with other agencies such as Elder Services of Worcester, Central Mass Agency on Aging, and The Executive Office of Elder Affairs.
