For over 40 years Minuteman Senior Services has been helping older and disabled adults age with independence and dignity in the setting of their choice - most often their own homes and communities. We support caregivers, local and long distance, who want to do the right thing for their loved ones and need help and advice as they balance the competing demands of family, work and self.
We offer over 20 programs and services and are continually innovating, improving and expanding in new and better ways. Our consumers give us very high marks as do our professional colleagues and that is very important to us. With over 130 employees, 500+ volunteers, and over 70 subcontracted service providers that make up our vendor network, we bring a lot of expertise, experience and resources to the people we serve.
As a non-profit organization we are passionate about our mission to help our consumers and their families face the challenges of aging and caregiving. We help them make informed decisions and get easy access to the help needed that fits within their means. Many of our services are free of charge; others are available on a sliding fee or private pay basis.
We operate 12 dining sites serving elders who are mobile and the Meals on Wheels program for those who are homebound throughout the 16 communities we serve.
