Cooperative Elder Services, Inc. has received a $4,500 grant from the Foundation for MetroWest.

CESI will use the grant to enhance and expand the Memory Care and Music Therapy programs at their Groton and and Concord Adult Day Health Centers.

The funds will directly benefit frail and low-income elders from the MetroWest communities who rely on day programs to maintain their health and quality of life.

A nonprofit Adult Day Health organization serving elders since 1979, CESI operates centers in Concord, Groton, Burlington, Arlington and Milton.

CESI provides a welcoming day-time environment for local seniors, with nursing care, nutrition, socialization with peers, therapeutic activities, social services, caregiver support and round-trip transportation offered throughout the week.

The mission of CESI is to delay or prevent nursing home placement by promoting health and independence, so that vulnerable elders can age in place.
