The Council on Aging consists of a seven member Board who meets on the second Monday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the Town Hall. If the scheduled meeting date will fall on a holiday, then the meeting will be held the following Monday.
The Council on Aging's function is to provide referrals for nursing services, homemakers, or other state or federal agencies for needed assistance. Plympton provides the services of a Senior Aide for transportation to doctors appointments or grocery shopping. Our Outreach Worker, Joyce Curran, makes visits to shut-ins and nursing homes.
