Commission on Affairs of the Elderly
The mission of the Commission on Affairs of the Elderly is to enhance the quality of life for Boston's senior citizens through planning, coordinating, and monitoring the delivery of services to the elderly in an efficient and effective manner.
The Elderly Commission, as Boston's Area Agency on Aging and Council on Aging, promotes the active involvement of seniors in the life and health of their neighborhoods. The Elderly Commission is also a partner agency in the Suffolk County Aging and Disability Resource Consortium (ADRC). The goal of the ADRC is to enhance collaborations between elder and disability service organizations, ensuring there is no wrong door when an elder or person with a disability is looking for assistance and services.
