Text Only Introduction
LifePath, an Area Agency on Aging, is a private, nonprofit corporation that develops, provides and coordinates a range of services to support the independent living of elders and persons with disabilities with a goal of independence. We also support caregivers, including grandparents raising grandchildren, in many ways.
LifePath serves all of Franklin County and Athol, Petersham, Royalston and Phillipston, Massachusetts. Some of our programs are available in Hampden, Hampshire, and Berkshire counties.
Roseann Martoccia is the Executive Director of LifePath.
We are committed to:
- Preventing or postponing the need for institutional care.
- Providing support through care transitions across settings.
- Advocating for elders and for people with disabilities.
- Funding local projects, including Legal Services, Alzheimer's Services, Elder Peer Counseling and Health & Fitness programs.
- Providing support to local Councils on Aging.
We have been providing family and caregiver support and community-based services for elders and for persons with disabilities living in our service area since 1974.
