Council on Aging

Brewster Council on Aging is a community resource and a department of the Town of Brewster Massachusetts. The mission of the Brewster Council on Aging is to enhance the dignity and well-being of Brewster Elders.  The staff of the Council on Aging is always available to link our seniors to services and give support.

Our building was built in 1893 as the Town Hall.  Most people recognize our building as the “Big, Historic, Yellow Victorian Building” next door to the Fire Station.

The Council on Aging Board consists of Brewster residents who advocate for seniors to help maximize their independence and quality of life.  They support programs and services to meet seniors’ health, economic, intellectual, social, and cultural needs.
