Claimed city

Marshfield is a town in Plymouth County, Massachusetts, United States, on Massachusetts's South Shore. The population was 25,132 at the 2010 census. The Council on Aging, a human service department of  the town, through it’s Senior Center, provides a central mechanism for the delivery of services and activities to Marshfield’s elder population. Programs and Services include:

  1. Information and Referral: Through trained staff and an extensive resource file, the Council on Aging is able to direct callers to the appropriate resources and answer questions about a variety of services. In many cases, the Council on Aging makes the referral for those seeking assistance and provides follow-up to insure that the needed assistance has been rendered.

SHINE counselors can help elders and Medicare beneficiaries understand their rights and benefits under Medicare and other health insurance coverage.
