Health Programs & Services
The Stoneham Senior Center provides specialized services for the seniors of our community. Most services are free; some are provided at a modest cost to help cover expenses. We are extremely grateful to our volunteers, sponsors, and donors for making these services possible.
Help Keep Our Community Safe:
Expired Medication and Prescriptions
The Stoneham Police Department has a secure drop-off container to dispose of medications, available 24/7. If you cannot drop them off on your own, the Senior Center van will provide transportation for you on Mondays between the hours of 10:00 AM and Noon. Call the Center at (781) 438-1157 to make arrangements.
If you need to dispose of needles or other medical sharp instruments, there is a designated medical sharps container located outside of the ladies room on the first floor of the Senior Center.
There’s Help for Medical Expenses:
Do you have outstanding medical bills or pending services which you may not be able to manage? There are local funds available to assist with these needs. If you would like a review of eligibility for these grants, please call the Stoneham Council on Aging at (781) 438-1157. Leave your name, phone and/or additional contact information, and specify your interest in the medical funds. Maureen Canova, Director of the Stoneham Council on Aging will contact you directly.
