Council on Aging

Purpose & Services

The Weston Council on Aging supports the welfare and interests of the town’s seniors and those who care for them.  We offer comprehensive information, referral and social services; health and wellness programs; educational and social offerings; transportation, and other opportunities for people to stay connected to the community.



Our social workers offer residents referrals for housing options, information about in-home services, discussions about health concerns, transportation, support groups and guidance on strategies to remain independent in one’s  home.  We also maintain a resource listing of pre-screened in-home contractors. 


A variety of transportation options are available: our 12-passenger bus provides on-demand rides, weekly shopping trips and day trips to cultural events; a volunteer network of drivers offers rides to medical appointments; and the COA offers low-cost coupons for taxi rides to nearby towns.  COA Staff can provide information on other transportation alternatives.

Fitness and Wellness

Led by trained instructors, COA fitness programs are offered 5 days a week, close to home and with one’s peers.  Classes target balance, flexibility, strength training and cardiovascular health.  The COA offers health education lectures on a variety of topics.  A blood pressure monitoring clinic and a food pantry are also available.  

Educational and Social 

A wide variety of instructional courses are offered each month.  Classes include languages, art, music and one-time topics related to health and financial concerns. Groups gather to knit, discuss current events, play card games or watch a movie.  Individuals are welcome to stop by, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and catch up with the news.

The COA is supported by over 150 volunteers.  Interested in seeing how you can help?  Click here for a list of volunteer opportunities.
