The Council on Aging's function is to provide referrals for nursing services, homemakers, or other state or federal agencies for needed assistance. Plympton provides the services of a Senior Aide for transportation to doctors appointments or grocery shopping. Our Outreach Worker, Joyce Curran, makes visits to shut-ins and nursing homes.
