Claimed city

Wenham prides itself on being age friendly and has a city department named the "Council on Aging" responsible for providing comprehensive services to its citizens as they mature. Services include:

  • A tax work-off program that allows citizens to earn an hourly wage that can be applied directly to their property taxes
  • A van service that can be scheduled to pick up and drop off residents, as well as assist with weekly grocery pickup
  • Coordination with food and nutrition services, adult protective services, caregiver support, housing assistance, nursing services, and pet help
Wenham is an emerging age friendly community. This means it is pursuing an age friendly designation.
