ABOUT THE COUNCIL ON AGING
The Council on Aging’s mission is to foster an atmosphere of wellness during the aging process among Medfield's senior population. We address the emotional, social, physical and often spiritual needs of older individuals and their families. Our goal is to enhance our member’s quality of life and promote independence through our varied programs, active social events, wide services and confidential referrals. Visit us at The Center or call us to learn more about how we can meet the needs of our elder community members during their life journey.

Fall is Here, Winter is Coming—Fuel Assistance is Available! Need help paying for fuel this winter? You are not alone. We can help with fuel assistance!!
Fuel assistance helps thousands of local families with home heating bills each year. Did you know, fuel assistance is not just for oil, gas, or electricity, if you heat your home with a pellet or wood stove you may receive assistance with that too! The application process may seem daunting and I am happy to assist you in this task! The application period is from November 1, 2018- April 30, 2019. If you previously received fuel assistance you should have received a renewal application in the mail. If it has not arrived, simply call SMOC at 508-620-2342 and they will re-issue another one for you. If you are new to fuel assistance and are wondering if you might qualify, I am happy to meet with you and go through the application process. Please contact the Center at 508-359-3665 and ask for Lisa Marie Donovan, Outreach Coordinator, for a confidential appointment.
