Old Colony Elder Services (OCES) is open and continues to address the needs of our consumers and the local community. We will continue to provide services to older adults and individuals with disabilities to keep them safe and independent at home. If you have a Protective Services concern, please call this number.
We are in close contact with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs, and the Department of Public Health, and we are following their guidance as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended best practices. In addition, we are in close communication with our extensive network of in-home service providers, councils on aging, health care partners, and community partners to deliver services in a safe and effective manner.
Our #1 priority is the wellbeing and health of our staff, consumers, volunteers and community! As this situation is evolving, we want to direct all community members to contact 211 for all COVID-19 pandemic related information. If you are looking for services from OCES contact our Information and Referral Department at 508-584-1561.

April is National Volunteer Month!
Volunteers generously donate their time and effort for the benefit of others. With today’s busy lifestyles, this is no small feat. Many of us interact with volunteers while going about our day-to-day activities and don’t even realize it. Some volunteers are easy to spot because of the organizations they represent, such as the team hammering and sawing to build a new home for a family in need, or the dog walker for the local animal shelter, or the person organizing the shelves at the food pantry. There are many dedicated volunteers working among us every day. Read more.
