Our Outreach Department at the Senior Center can assist you with Information and Referrals, Public Benefits Assistance, and Ongoing Case Management. Lisa and Marlene have referred individuals to BayPath Elder Services, Meals-on-Wheels, Visiting Nurse Associations, Eldercare lawyers, SMOC (South Middlesex Opportunity Council), food pantry, Advocates and other other professional agencies. They assist with applications including SMOC Fuel Assistance, SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assisance program), tax exemptions, Massachusetts Health Services, Supplemental Security Income (SSO), and Social Security Disabilities Income (SSDI). They also provide support to help you maintain your independence, safety and health within your home and community. Outreach services respects the confidentiality of the individual.

Durable Medical Equipment Available
The Senior Center has durable medical equipment available for loan. Equipment includes shower chairs, shower benches for a tub, walkers, canes, crutches, rolling walkers, bed rails, grabbers and more! We have a lmited number of purchased/donated Transport Chairs, therefore we must request they be returned in a reasonable lenght of time. We do not loan them out for long term use since many people need them for a weekend, one day, or visiting relatives. We require a $25 deposit to be returned upon return of the chair. The maximum weight is 250lbs. 

File-Of-Life
Fire Department EMTs and Outreach have developed a handy form to place on the outside of your refrigerator that contains all pertinent information should a medical emergency arise. This free, magnetic holder and form is well-known to the emergency response teams in Hopkinton.  The File-of-Life form contains information regarding contacting your closest relative or friend, your insurance account numbers and a list of medications you take, along with other information a hospital might need.  Please contact the Outreach Department if you would like to have this form.  And, if you already have one, please be sure to keep it up-to-date or ask for a new form.  If you need assistance in filling it out Outreach would be happy to help.
