Our Mission

The mission of North Shore Elder Services is to serve the functional needs of older adults residing on the North Shore of Massachusetts by providing support, information, and services to them and their families.

Our vision is for each individual to live as independently as possible in locations of their choice for as long as possible.


We serve our communities primarily through the provision of programs and services funded by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs that “promote the integrity, rights and independence of all seniors and their caregivers.” Specifically, we accomplish this through the provision of home care services, nursing assessments, protective services, information services, a nutrition program, a nursing facility ombudsman program, and an array of community services provided by volunteers (e.g. money management, medical advocacy, companions, and grocery shopping.)
