The Cohasset Outreach program (free service) is a personal link to citizens who are 60 years or older and the many benefits that are available in the community. Diane Picot, whom is our Outreach Coordinator, is available for confidential office and/or home visits and provide advocacy and referral services to elders and their caregivers. She is a caring link to the community for those who need relief from isolation, or need assistance with forms and insurances. Some of the benefit programs we assist with are:
SNAP (formerly food stamps)
Health safety net
Cohasset Housing Applications
Cohasset Community Contact List
Contact Elder Affairs if you are interested in having your name added to our emergency list available to older adults age 60 and above who are vulnerable during weather or other community wide emergencies. Participants in the program will receive telephone call check ins for safety concerns and well- being. This is a voluntary program and will only be shared with the Cohasset Fire, Police and Health departments for assistance when necessary.
The outreach worker is very knowledgeable about community resources and makes referrals to South Shore Elder Services for home care services and Meals on Wheels. We encourage and welcome any and all volunteers who are interested in visiting and helping elders on a regular basis.
