Elder Services

A team of experienced clinicians with expertise in serving older adults and their families

As we age we may experience more illness and pain, memory loss, loss of friends and family, and care-giving responsibilities. Such events and others can affect the quality of our lives, leaving us sad, depressed, anxious, or worried. We may feel isolated and alone, even with family members around.

Elder Services is designed to meet the special mental health and substance abuse needs of older adults. We work with older adults, their caregivers, and their support networks to enhance dignity and independence. Appointments are available in-home or in-office at our Marlborough and Framingham clinics.

Our service area includes the following MetroWest communities: Ashland, Dover, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Hudson, Marlborough, Natick, Northborough, Sherborn, Southborough, Sudbury, Wayland, and Westborough.

We work in close partnership with BayPath Elder Services.

Languages spoken: English, Spanish, and Portuguese
Insurance or private pay services: Medicare, Mass Health, and most private insurance accepted.
