Council on Aging
As a town department the Needham Council on Aging is charged with serving Needham’s 60 population and their families, by addressing diverse aspects of aging service interests, concerns and needs. The functions of the department are not confined by walls.   We fulfill our mission as a true community partner by delivering programs and services in a variety of places, and wherever it is needed throughout the town. The Council on Aging also offers a variety of programs and services five days a week at The Center at The Heights.
