Minuteman Senior Services
With close to 40 years of experience serving seniors, disabled adults and caregivers, we are the
hub of a network of support services that help keep people independent. We provide free
information and referral, both locally and nation-wide, and through our care managers we can
arrange for a variety of services such as personal care assistance, grocery shopping, adult day
care and transportation to medical appointments. We offer health insurance counseling through
the SHINE program and assistance with bill paying and budgeting through the Money
Management program. Our Caregiver Support program provides education, support and
personalized training to families caring for seniors. At our senior dining sites in local senior
centers and senior housing, older people enjoy nourishing luncheons in a nurturing, social
environment and our volunteers deliver hundreds of hot meals each week to people who are
home bound through the Meals on Wheels program. Minuteman is also one of 22 programs in
Massachusetts that, under state contract, investigates reports of elder abuse, neglect, self neglect
and financial exploitation.
