The general mandate of the Medford Council on Aging is to be the primary advocate for Medford’s older adults. To that end, the Council evaluates, promotes, encourages and provides new and existing services that are intended to enhance the quality of the lives of elder residents.
The Council provides services to elders residing in the community; the determining age is sixty (60) years. In addition, Council staff assists families and friends seeking information on services and programs on behalf of local elders. For the comfort of persons with disabilities, the Medford Senior Center is a barrier-free facility.
