Health and Wellness


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.
  • Sharps Container
    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.
