Mission Statement

To help seniors and people with disabilities live in the setting of their choice by engaging community resources and supporting caregivers.

Background Statement

Minuteman Senior Services has nearly 40 years of experience serving seniors, disabled adults and caregivers, and is the hub of a network of support services that keep people independent. We provide free information and referral, both locally and nationwide, and our care managers can arrange for a variety of non-medical in-home support services such as personal care assistance, grocery shopping, homemaking, adult day care and transportation to medical appointments. We offer health insurance counseling through the SHINE program and assistance with bill-paying and budgeting through the Money Management program. Our Caregiver Support program provides education and personalized training to families caring for loved ones. At our community based Senior Dining Centers older people enjoy nourishing luncheons in a nurturing, social environment, and our volunteers deliver hundreds of hot meals each week to people who are homebound through the Meals on Wheels program. Our Healthy Living coaches lead workshops that help people manage their chronic diseases, prevent falls and eat wisely. We are one of 22 programs in Massachusetts that, under state contract, investigates reports of elder abuse, neglect, self-neglect and financial exploitation.

We are an Area Agency on Aging (AAA) and part of the Massachusetts Aging Services Access Point (ASAP) network. Founded in 1975, we provide services in 16 communities north and west of Boston. Our mission is to help seniors and people with disabilities live in the setting of their choice by engaging community resources and supporting caregivers.Our goal has always been to serve older people in the greatest economic and social need.We provide vital services that support aging with dignity and enable family caregivers to continue caregiving, saving taxpayer dollars by preventing the unnecessary use of institutional care. Last year we provided services to over 20,000 people in our 16-town area.

We are governed by community representatives who are often retired professionals and/or consumer activists with a deep commitment to seniors and people with disabilities. We are a conduit for most of the state and federal funding that is available for community-based senor services, and we maintain close working relationships with Councils on Aging, hospitals, police departments, housing authorities, mental health agencies, local service providers and all others involved with seniors, people with disabilities and those who care for them.

Impact Statement


Our greatest accomplishment of the past year is that over 20,000 people turned to us for help for themselves or someone they know who was facing the challenges of aging and caregiving and we were able to provide them with information, direct assistance and/or support. We are proud to say we have earned the trust and appreciation of the people we serve, with an overall satisfaction rating of 95.6% from consumers last year.

In keeping with our mission, we are a vital resource to seniors, disabled adults and caregivers despite limited public funding. Deeply committed to giving older people some control over their lives we continue to advocate for funding that allows people to age in their own home and community. Creative and responsible stewardship of the resources that are allocated to us is a primary goal.

Our reach has expanded to serve adults of all ages with disabilities that need some help to live independently, aligning with national and local trends toward integrating aging and disability services. We continue to expand our expertise around disabilities issues and enhance our working relationships with groups such as independent living centers, providers of services to developmentally disabled adults, mental health providers and others.

We are collaborating with medical partners across the continuum to meet the triple aim of health care reform: better health, better care, reduced costs. We introduced the role of Community Care Coordinator with an onsite presence at area hospitals and primary care practices. Coordinators work closely with medical partners to assist disabled adults and seniors who need resources including transportation, in-home care, affordable housing, health benefits information and caregiver support. We seek opportunities to practice prevention: increase enrollment in fall prevention and disease management programs; continue to be the “eyes and ears” in the home and communicate the risks we observe in the home to medical professionals.

Needs Statement


Public funding has not kept pace with growing demand for our services or the cost of delivery in the greater Boston area, and we rely on the generosity of private donors to avoid waiting lists. Seniors in suburban communities are often “house rich, cash poor” and isolated. These programs are a priority for charitable contributions: 

  • Meals on Wheels:This vital program provides a mid-day nutritious meal and daily check in by a friendly driver for people who are homebound, at nutritional risk and unable to prepare their own food. Drivers are trained to be our “eyes and ears” in the community and report any change that might indicate a health risk. $75,000
  • SHINE Health Benefits Counseling:Trained counselors provide Medicare beneficiaries with free, confidential counseling and accurate, unbiased information regarding health insurance and prescription drug options, navigating this maze in a rapidly changing environment $20,000
  • ElderProtective Services:Social workers investigate reports of elder abuse, neglect, financial exploitation and self-neglect (such as hoarding) and work toward resolution. These difficult and sensitive situations require special expertise and adequate time to address the complex issues while respecting the individuals right to self-determination. $22,000

CEO Statement


This year I celebrated my 30th year at Minuteman Senior Services and yes, I mean celebrated. I can’t think of any work more important than serving the thousands of people – seniors, disabled adults and family caregivers - who depend on us to be both navigator and safety net during life’s most challenging chapters. 

Can you imagine a time when there wasn’t a choice whether to age at home or go into a nursing home?I am proud of the creativity, diligence and dedication of our staff, our volunteers and our Partners in Caring – our network of carefully selected local agencies that attend to people’s needs at home each and every day, supporting their independence. I am proud that we are there for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities – those who experience abuse or neglect at the hand of trusted caregivers and those who need physical assistance or other supports to accomplish the tasks of daily living that you and I take for granted.

Senior nutrition is a national health problem facing local seniors and there might be someone at nutritional risk in your neighborhood. Thankfully, programs like Meals on Wheels address barriers to healthy eating (like difficulty with cooking or grocery shopping or financial insecurity), allowing people to live home longer. The Meals on Wheels program provides a hot meal and a daily check-in by a trained and compassionate delivery person, usually a volunteer.

Millions of Americans must re-evaluate their health care and prescription drug options under Medicare each year, and Minuteman’s SHINE counselors are the experts at navigating this bureaucratic maze for local seniors and people with disabilities, reading the fine print, explaining options and answering questions face to face.

Public funding has not kept pace with the growing need so today we are asking you to help us assist others. Those who use our services give us very high ratings and expressions of gratitude on satisfaction surveys. This tells me that we are doing a very good job, and after 30 years, that makes me proudest of all.

Your donation, in any amount, will help us fulfill our mission to help people age with dignity in the setting of their choice. We can do this thanks to your vision, your commitment and your generosity.What a privilege doing this job continues to be!

Board Chair Statement

One measure of a civilization is the degree to which it supports its elder citizens and people with disabilities. Most seniors would prefer to live independently rather than being institutionalized.  Many are able to achieve this higher quality of life on their own but some need a little help. Our mission at Minuteman Senior Services is to facilitate services such as Meals on Wheels, Case Management and In-Home Care, Protective Services and Caregiver Support. Your generous financial contributions and the volunteering of your services are critical to our mission of assisting these people in need.


With public funding at risk during these uncertain economic times, we are increasingly looking to the private sector to help us accomplish our support of these people in need. I am personally committed along with Minuteman to provide these services to all in our 16 community area to achieve safe and independent living. Please continue to join me in this effort.

Elder Protective Services


Elder abuse is any act or omission that results in serious physical or emotional injury to, or financial exploitation of a person over age 60. This includes physical, verbal, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect, financial exploitation and self-neglect (i.e.,hoarding). We are designated to investigate and intervene to protect the rights and safety of the elder, which can literally mean the difference between life and death. Unfortunately state funding doesn’t keep pace with the growing demand or the cost of delivering this labor intensive and sensitive service. Since the program is based on a person’s right to self-determination, staff must determine whether they are competent to make their own decisions. Often the presence of mental illness, memory loss or substance abuse makes this very challenging, and cutbacks in services like mental health care at a time when family stress is so high has resulted in more referrals to this program, which investigated 700 cases last year.

Budget  $503,800.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Emergency Assistance
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled
Program Short-Term Success   

Economic stresses are pushing family caregivers to the breaking point, fueling a rise in abuse allegations, especially financial exploitation cases. Services that are preventive in nature, like education and awareness campaigns and ongoing outreach and support groups for potential victims, will help to reduce this trend. For example, educating those in the health care field on elder abuse and neglect, and explaining the Protective Services program and mandated reporting requirements (what is a reportable condition, the process of a filed report, and program philosophy/right to self-determination) should result in increased reporting numbers from doctors and hospitals in the area. 


As part of a domestic violence support group that lasted for 12 monthly sessions, women were given support, referrals, and a sense of community. Women were empowered, self-esteem increased, and ability to assert themselves with abusive partners with greater frequency and success.


Program Long-Term Success   

Often seniors who are dependent on others feel vulnerable or intimidated and tolerate abuse or neglect for fear of nursing home placement or abandonment by family. Overwhelmed caregivers may unintentionally neglect a loved one, and economic pressures on families today have lead to an increase in financial exploitation. Seniors with dementia or mental health issues who live alone may be estranged from their families and unable to manage their home or daily care. Our staff try to empower seniors who are reluctant to leave an abusive situation by helping them understand their options and mediate a difficult situation. Providing resources for caregivers can relieve the stress and eliminate the neglectful or abusive behavior and providing support services for those who self-neglect or are hoarders may alleviate a dangerous situation. Our Money Management staff offer assistance with bill paying and budgeting to prevent financial exploitation and poor decision-making related to finances.


Program Success Monitored By   

The MA Executive Office of Elder Affairs monitors the program closely on an ongoing basis through monthly statistical reports and case reviews. Every 3-4 years a thorough audit of the program by state auditors is done. The most recent Protective Services Program audit was done in October 2012, and assessed our performance on 29 specific performance criteria in areas including Intake and Screening, Investigations, Services and Documentation. The Minuteman Senior Services Protective Services Program was found to be in compliance with program expectations and many complimentary comments were offered by the auditors. 


The Minuteman Money Management Program is audited annually on behalf of the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and AARP by the Statewide Money Management Program. In FY12 Minuteman's program was found to 100% in compliance with program requirements.


Examples of Program Success   

Our Elder Protective Services program serves approximately 700 seniors each year who are experiencing abuse or neglect or exhibiting self neglecting behaviors. Here is an example:

Mrs. A is a 90 year old woman who resides alone in senior housing. Our staff were familiar with her situation as she had been referred in the past for financial exploitation and emotional abuse by her son, allegations which had been substantiated but she refused to accept help. A new report was received alleging physical abuses which had resulted in bruises to her face and arm. Although frightened, this time she was ready to let staff explore her options for alleviating the abusive situation. The hope is that the elder's other family members who have been absent from her life would now be willing to visit and assist with her care

Meals on Wheels


Our Meals on Wheels program served over 900 seniors last year. Recent funding cuts have made it necessary to target services to those in the greatest need, and we are committed to avoiding a waiting list for this service, which provides not only a nutritional benefit but also a daily check in by a volunteer driver. This social contact reduces the isolation often experienced by disabled seniors. Drivers are trained to identify/report observable problems and have found seniors who have fallen or have had a heart attack and were the first responder to summon help. A Nutrition Risk Assessment is conducted to determine barriers to healthy eating like difficulty with grocery shopping, cooking and/or financial challenges. This critical, cost-effective service is essential to the health and safety of disabled seniors, and private donors enable us to avoid maintaining a waiting list.  

Budget  $830,000.00
Category  Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, General/Other Meal Distribution
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled
Program Short-Term Success   

In addition to providing homebound, disabled seniors with the recommended daily nutrition, our Meals on Wheels drivers (most of whom are volunteers) provide a personal check-in 5 days/week. This is often the only social contact some elders have and goes a long way in reducing the isolation often experienced by disabled seniors. Drivers are specially trained to observe changes in an elder’s appearance or living environment that might indicate problems and report back to our staff for further investigation, if warranted. In fact, there have been instances where a Meals on Wheels driver arrived at a home to find a medical emergency that would have otherwise gone undetected. In fact, Meals on Wheels drivers have found seniors who have fallen or have had a heart attack or other medical emergency and were the first responder to summon help. This is a critical, very cost effective service that is essential to the health and safety of seniors and caregivers.

Program Long-Term Success   

The Meals on Wheels program provides a cost effective intervention for seniors who are at nutritional risk, and a safety net for homebound seniors who can be observed by the trained volunteer driver for signs of other health risks which are then communicated back to our care team and addressed.


Meals include dietary considerations for those with chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Without these specially prepared meals to accommodate medical needs, consumers are at risk for regressing to more dangerous health conditions.


Addressing the nutritional needs of seniors and helping them better manage their chronic conditions is a key component of health care reform and we are proud to play a role in helping seniors stay healthier and helping them avoid use of more costly hospital based care.

Program Success Monitored By   

As a federally funded Area Agency on Aging, Meals on Wheels is subject to an annual evaluation of service delivery, personnel, and fiscal operation, a count of units served and the initiation of effective outreach activities. Our ability to reach out to older persons with the greatest economic or social need in our service delivery area is also assessed. We receive feedback from program participants through surveys and we adapt our meal planning and service delivery accordingly. Our abilityto provide meals for all who qualify without starting a waiting list is a clear marker of success, as is the number ofseniors who stay in their homes longer and maintain adequate health and nutrition as a result of this intervention.

Examples of Program Success   

Minuteman Senior Services provided Meals on Wheels to 900 homebound seniors last year, many of whom might be living in a nursing facility if it weren’t for this vital service. Astaff member recently visited a man that had sustained significant injuries, including multiple fractures and a complicating brain injury, and noted that the man had lost weight, was living in an apartment without electricity, was unable to care for himself and had not responded to Social Security communications regarding his disability. He kept asking if the visitor had any food because he was hungry.


As trained, our staff member alerted the team which sprung into action. A comprehensive care plan was developed, including personal care assistance, help applying for disability benefits and a daily Meals on Wheels delivery. Staff also returned to the consumer’s home with a “shelf pack” of food hand selected for this type of emergency, and our new consumer was prevented from falling through the cracks.  

SHINE Health Benefits Counseling


This volunteer-based program serves Medicare subscribers who are seniors and those under 65 who are disabled. Program staff and volunteers help people navigate the bureaucratic maze, perform outreach for state programs like Prescription Advantage and federal programs like Medicare D, and provide one-on-one assistance in explaining coverage options and completing applications.

SHINE counselors complete a rigorous training program and hold “office hours” at senior centers, senior housing and hospitals, with over 4700 people assisted last year. The need has increased over the years as the options keep changing and many Medicare beneficiaries remain confused and in need of one-on-one guidance. 

Budget  $132,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled
Program Short-Term Success   

In these difficult economic times, many low-income and disabled Medicare beneficiaries are struggling with the increased medical and prescription insurance costs. Many either stop paying their health and insurance premiums, or stop taking their medications in order to make ends meet. The SHINE program works to insure that people can navigate the complex health insurance system in order to have the most adequate and cost-effective coverage.


Program Long-Term Success   

Accurate, unbiased information about health insurance is a necessity for today’s Medicare beneficiaries, as the options and costs continue to change at a rapid

pace. Medicare beneficiaries are faced with a confusing array of health plans and the accompanying deductibles, co-pays, formularies, and enrollment periods. Those with mental health issues and especially the very frail find this particularly confusing and difficult to navigate on their own. The SHINE Program continues to see an increase in these more complex and time-consuming client cases, especially among those who are marginalized.

Program Success Monitored By   

The SHINE Program currently collects client and demographic information on those receiving counseling on a monthly basis. This information is entered into a Federal database that is used to evaluate many data points. This same information allows the Regional Programs to monitor and track their community’s data and performance. Proxy amounts are applied to specific assistance to estimate potential cost savings for the clients. In order to insure quality counseling and accurate information, client satisfaction surveys are mailed out monthly to those that have received one on one counseling. To date, performance satisfaction has been 95% or higher.


Examples of Program Success   

Our SHINE program served 4700 seniors last year resulting in savings of$3,157,600 forbeneficiaries in our service area. Here are some of the comments from seniors we have helped:


You are in the right job, please continue to help people. I can hear your love and kindness right through the phone. I know that there are many people like me who are dealing with long term care issues for our parents, and SHINE is invaluable to us. Your presentation was so well done and the handouts were great. Thanks for such a clear explanation of the changes in Prescription Advantage.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
