South Shore Elder Services, Inc. (SSES) recommends and coordinates resources for elders to help them to remain as independent as possible. The private, non-profit agency also advocates for elders and their caregivers, always with the goal of promoting an optimal quality of life.
SSES has a contract with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs (Elder Affairs) to coordinate and/or provide a wide range of in-home services to ill and frail low-income elders in 11 communities on the South Shore. Some other programs, such as Meals on Wheels, are available regardless of income.
Elder Affairs provides the majority of funding–which includes funds from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Title III of the Older Americans Act–for SSES’ programs. Grants and contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations provide additional funding.
