Council on Aging

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Marblehead Council on Aging is to enhance the quality of life for seniors and to promote respect and good will in the community by informing, educating and advocating for seniors and those who care for them and to provide services and activities which promote healthy, successful and enjoyable living.

What We Do:

The Council on Aging (COA) serves as a source for all information concerning every elderly service on a local, state and federal level.  Its offices, activities and programs, are located in the Senior Center in the Marblehead Community Center.  Recreational and educational activities at the center are listed in the Marblehead Council On Aging Newsletter, a free monthly newsletter available throughout town and at the Community Center.


The Council on Aging (COA), established in 1969, is a department of the municipal government of Marblehead, authorized under Chapter 40 Section 8B of the Massachusetts General Laws.  The Council's nine members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen, as is the Executive Director.  Board meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 3:15 pm at the Center.
