The Charlemont Council on Aging is a municipally appointed volunteer board authorized under Massachusetts General Laws. Major responsibilities of this Department include setting local policy for the administration of elder programs and services; identifying the total needs of the community's elder population; developing, promoting, and implementing services to meet these needs; serving as an advocate for elders; and educating the community-at-large about these needs and the available resources. Serving the towns of Charlemont and Hawley, our ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life of our residents 60 years of age and over and to enable them to remain active and independent within their own community. The following are the main categories of services offered:
- General information, referral, and social support
- Fitness Opportunities
- Financial and Repair
Hot meals are available Wednesdays at Noon - Contact the Site Manager Diane Gingras by 9:00am Tuesday at (413) 339-5720.
Also at the Charlemont Senior Community Center
you can find food assistance administered by the Food Bank of Western Mass. Brown Bag: Food for Elders Program
which provides a free bag of healthy groceries to eligible seniors once a month at local senior centers and community organizations.
