Council on Aging

Welcome to The Northampton Council on Aging and Senior Center section of the City of Northampton website .

The Northampton Council on Aging and Senior Center is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the City’s elders, ages 60 and over, with some programs and activities available to those 55-59 years of age.  Every elder is a valued member of the community and has the right to a life of dignity while maintaining a maximum level of independence. To meet this goal, the Northampton Council on Aging identifies needs and provides a range of programs, activities and services to address those needs. The Northampton Council on Aging serves as a community focal point around issues of aging and is a liaison to local, state and federal resources for elders and their families.
