All of our services revolve around the goal of maintaining independence and dignity.

Description

Bristol is a designated Aging Services Access Point, and as such serves as the entry point for a vast array of elder services in southeastern Massachusetts. Additionally, as an Area Agency on Aging, Bristol receives and disburses funds under the federal Older Americans Act, promoting independence for elders through the provision of community-based services.

Primarily serving people in the following communities, although we can help others search for resources in other areas of Massachusetts: Attleboro, Berkley, Dighton, Fall River, Freetown, Mansfield, North Attleboro, Norton, Raynham, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Somerset, Swansea, Taunton, Westport.
