At Elder Resource Center, we know families are overwhelmed by the many facets of care for an aging loved one: health care, safe home environments, transportation needs, legal, financial and asset planning and insurance just to name a few.

Complementing the services offered in many local towns in their senior centers, our programs will be housed in convenient locations such as libraries, assisted living communities and schools so that a wide variety of people can access information without an extra trip. We will also offer referrals to private as well as public resources.
 
Mary Roque, the founder and Executive Director is in an unique position to spearhead this effort. She has an expertise in trusts and estates and elder law and an extensive background in real estate development for senior housing.

Programs For People Inc.

Programs For People offers day treatment and employment services to low-income MetroWest adults who are recovering from serious mental illness.  We believe that a diagnosis of mental illness does not define a person's identity, and that those recovering should be given every opportunity to move beyond the illness to the fullest possible extent. Thus our agency is designed to help clients with both their psychological needs and their ability to engage successfully in all aspects of life- such as the workplace, home and family, or social and civic activities. It was the first agency to combine psychiatric day treatment with employment services "all under one roof," and a primary focus of our work is to assist those served to prepare for, obtain, and maintain employment. In the face of a growing trend toward large healthcare systems, we have remained true to our motto, "Small Enough to Care." Those we serve are "like family" to us.  There is no other agency like it in MetroWest.
