Elder Resource Guide

This guide was developed by the Brookline Council on Aging and the Brookline Senior Center to assist seniors and their families/caregivers in negotiating the complex world of eldercare. There are an enormous amount of resources available to individuals over age 60 in the Greater Boston area, but attempting to locate and coordinate these resources can often be an overwhelming and frustrating task. We encourage you to use this material as a starting point. If you need more information, contact the agencies directly and as always feel free to contact us. Our professional social work staff are available free of charge to assist you.
