About Us

Council On Aging Department

A department of the City of Attleboro, the Larson Center is dedicated to enabling older residents of Attleboro (aged 60 and over) to live independently and with dignity through a wide spectrum of informational, recreational, volunteer, and service programs. The Attleboro COA identifies the needs of its elder residents and works toward developing and promoting programs and services to meet these needs. In addition, the Center serves as the host agency for the regional SHINE program, providing hundreds of elders with valuable and unbiased insurance information and resources. We also assist families of elders in matters regarding any elder issue. We offer an active Outreach department which provides information, referrals, and application assistance for public benefits; numerous exercise and recreational programs tailored to seniors at all ability levels; and nutritional programs that provide both hot meals and shelf-stable food to those in need. The Attleboro COA diligently seeks to provide seniors with both physical and intellectual engagement, meeting the needs of both mind and body.
