Groveland is a small town along the Merrimack River in Northern Massachusetts. With roots going back to the 1630s, the community of 332 people can trace their history to the country’s earliest colonists. More than 16% of the population is 65 or over, and there are plenty of things to keep seniors busy. Smolak Farms provides entertainment and agricultural education for interested visitors, and Cedarland provides delightful entertainment for seniors looking to spend the day with grandkids. The area has several walking trails to help seniors stay fit and enjoy the area’s scenic views.

Seniors who live in Groveland may choose to age in place at home by leveraging the resources of area home care agencies. There are two types of care available. Homemaker services average $5,291 per month and lighter home aide services cost the same. The national average for homemaker services is $4,290 per month, and home aide services cost $4,385 per month, more than 20% cheaper than in Groveland.

Groveland Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Groveland:

Home Modification Loan Program (HMLP)

Phone: (617) 204-3600 

This program, offered by the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, provides loans at 0% interest to help seniors and other adults with disabilities make accessibility improvements to their homes. These changes may include wider doors, grab bars in the bathroom and ramps for wheelchairs. Ranging from $1,000 to $50,000, the loans are based on household size, and each home can only take out one loan. 

Energy Savings and Fuel Assistance

Homestead Exemptions for Property Tax

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
