Hello Boston Seniors! Thinking about getting out and about more, now that Spring is here? Please give our volunteers a call at 855-249-5146. We are ready with information on Spring events happening for seniors throughout the Boston area!
If you need information about social events in the Irish community, we will provide a list from our calendar of upcoming events. Or, you might like to learn about what’s available in the local area for senior transportation services, home care, companionship, or errand services. We can provide you with options to choose from. Working with the staff of the Irish Pastoral Centre, we can also let you know about ongoing events and activities being held by the IPC Senior Outreach Program.
Irish Senior Connect is a confidential listening and information service hosted by the Irish Pastoral Centre in Dorchester. Our trained volunteers, many of whom are seniors themselves, are available to take your calls on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am to noon, and on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 2pm to 4pm. We’re here to listen about how you are feeling, how you day or week has been going, or hear about anything else you might like to discuss. We are here to listen and provide support and to make sure that no senior is feeling isolated or alone.
Please call us to say hello, have a chat, ask for event or services information, or to find out more about Irish Senior Connect, the listening line. Our volunteers are waiting to hear from you, and to listen!
