Council on Aging
Mount Washington has a Council on Aging, as do most towns throughout the state. The primary audience is residents 55 years of age and over. With our small population, programming and services are delivered out of Town Hall or in peoples' homes rather than through a senior center which is what you would find in larger towns.
Programming varies in response to resident needs and interests. Currently, we have a weekly Tai Chi and Meditation Class and a monthly community soup get together. Residents can contact Mary King Austin @ Town Hall (528.2839) or Cory Hines at home (526.3998) to request individual services such as shopping for groceries, transportation to doctor's visits or home cooking.
Funding support for this initiative comes from the state and from private donations. Anyone interested in donating may contact Mary King or Cory.
