Arlington Fire Relief Fund

On January 22, an early morning fire affected Chestnut Manor, a housing complex for seniors and people with disabilities run by the Arlington Housing Authority. The Arlington Department of Health and Human Services, through the Council on Aging has established a donation fund to support the residents that have been impacted.

COVID-19 Updates

Throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the team at Minuteman Senior Services has continued to operate our programs and services, as well as support residents in navigating the public health crisis. We remain committed to doing our part to promote the health, safety, and access to services for those in need.

  • Please contact us if you need information on available vaccination or testing sites, assistance acquiring at-home tests, or other COVID-related questions.

  • Insurance carriers, as well as MassHealth, are now providing coverage of at-home tests for members. For more information

  • The most recent surge in COVID-19 cases is having continued impact on the availability of home care workers, such as home care aides and homemakers. As an alternative, the Consumer-Directed Care program allows consumers to hire someone of their own choosing. Please ask your Care Manager if you are eligible.

  • We have implemented a COVID-19 immunization policy for staff and volunteers at Minuteman Senior Services. This is an extension of our ongoing efforts, such as use of personal protective equipment, social distance, and cleaning practices, to promote the health and safety of consumers and families, volunteers, and employees.

  • Please note that, per the town of Bedford, masks are required when visiting our office. We do have masks available for visitors as needed.

  • If you or someone you know might benefit from our services, please contact us at 888-222-6171

Much appreciation to all who supported our 12th Annual Holiday Online Auction. We had bids totaling over $11,000 and much sponsor support, raising $17,370.00, funding that will allow us to serve those most in need during these challenging times.
