Mission Statement

We are committed to: Preventing or postponing the need for institutional care. Providing support through care transitions across settings. Advocating for elders and for people with disabilities. Funding local projects, including Legal Services, Alzheimer's Services, Elder Peer Counseling and Health & Fitness programs. Providing support to local Councils on Aging. Diversity. We have been providing family support and home and community-based services for elders and persons with disabilities living in Franklin County and the North Quabbin areas since 1974.

Description

At LifePath, we listen first, and then help each person find the best options for their unique needs. We help elders and persons with disabilities maintain independence and quality of life in their own homes and communities. We help busy caregivers to find relief and help loved ones to choose the right path.

As we have been for over 40 years, we'll be there offering options for independence.
