South Shore Elder Services, Inc. Charity Profile
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.
South Shore Elder Services, Inc. Volunteer Information
Our volunteers frequently tell us that they receive far more than they give when they help elders. Many have been volunteering 10, 15, even 20 years…longer than many people stay at a job. However, substitute positions, short term commitments, and even one-time task opportunities are available. Also, corporate, civic, youth, and faith-based groups sometimes team up to volunteer. In short, if you are willing and qualified, there is probably a volunteer opportunity to fit you.
