Mission & Vision

Agency Mission Statement

LifePath, an Area Agency on Aging (AAA), is a private, non-profit corporation that develops, provides, and coordinates a range of services to support independent living. LifePath provides home and community programs for the area known as Franklin County, plus the four Worcester County towns of Athol, Petersham, Phillipston, and Royalston for elders, persons with disabilities, and caregivers as the Aging Services Access Point (ASAP) and AAA. LifePath also operates programs in Hampshire, Hampden, and Berkshire Counties.

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.
  • Diversity.

We have been providing family support and home and community-based services for elders and persons with disabilities living in Franklin County and the North Quabbin areas since 1974.

Fairness and Respect for All

LifePath is committed to diversity in employment practices and service delivery. Our agency prohibits discrimination and takes affirmative action to serve people in our community with fairness and respect. We recognize that differences among people may be barriers to inclusion. These differences include race, physical appearance and ability, sex, age, nationality and ancestry, class, religious and political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We welcome and value all persons, and we dedicate our agency to an ongoing effort to achieve the goal of greater diversity among our employees, clients, and others whom we serve.
