About Newton at Home

Location:

206 Waltham Street, West Newton, MA 02465, US

Mission Statement

We empower older adults in Newton to retain their independence and stay socially connected as they age by providing an array of services and programs to enrich their lives and help meet their daily needs.

Description

Newton at Home is a member-led, volunteer-driven nonprofit that provides older adults in Newton with the information and resources to optimize choices for healthy, independent aging wherever they call home. Through programming, services, and strategic partnerships, we strive to bolster community health across Newton, promote intergenerational ties, support at-risk low-income seniors, and ease access to health-care.

We provide a variety of personalized services and programs that help combat social isolation and meet the essential daily needs of our members, including: transportation, taking out trash, small repairs around the house, grocery shopping, help with technology, friendly visits, and phone check-in calls. We also offer a rich and varied monthly schedule of programs and activities (walks, lectures, museum visits, meals, performances, and special events) that promote lifelong learning as well as member health and engagement.
