The mission of the Council on Aging is to partner with the Sandwich community to assure the best quality of life for older adults (age 60+), their families and caregivers. Our goal is to develop and provide programs and supportive outreach services promoting an independent, active and healthy lifestyle. We strive to ensure that Sandwich seniors have the opportunity to participate in an environment that fosters learning, social connection, and volunteerism.
Residents Under Age 60
Presently, the Council provides various assistance programs including fuel assistance and SNAP. Referrals to other agencies are also offered.
