Council on Aging

Mission of the Council on Aging:

The Council on Aging is charged with the responsibility of advocating on behalf of the seniors of Belmont and with ensuring that their social, financial and healthcare needs are met.

Services include:

  • Transportation for shopping & medical needs by reservation
  • Nutrition services (meals on wheels and daily luncheon)
  • Social services (confidential referrals and help with concerns)
  • Programs and newsletter (cultural, educational, recreational, holiday observance, entitlement, athletic, and social).

The Council on Aging has a network of appropriate resources available for Elders both in Belmont as well as outside the community.

An eleven member board is appointed by the Board of Selectmen to oversee programs and policies of the Council on Aging.
