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.

Gary Hylander Presentation

Dr. Gary Hylander returns with a presentation on The Great Molasses Flood. On January 15, 1919, a molasses tank at 529 Commercial Street exploded under pressure, killing 21 people. A 40-foot wave of molasses buckled the elevated railroad tracks, crushed buildings and inundated the North End neighborhood.Sign up to enjoy the interesting presentation.

Saturday Hours at the Center

The Center at Medfield has grown tremendously over the last ten years. As home to the Medfield Council on Aging, the Center’s presence has evolved into an active and vibrant community, offering over 900 seniors an extensive and broad range of activities, resources and events. A grant was submitted to MetroWest Health Foundation in October 2017 for funding to open our doors on Saturdays. And it was approved! Plan to visit the Center for programming each Saturday from 10:00 a.m.— 3:00 p.m.
