The Groton Council on Aging serves as the community focal point promoting the independence of older adults through information and referral, support, health and wellness, socialization and education.
We provide opportunities for all individuals as they age by leveraging resources, developing a sustainable future, and engaging in strong partnerships and collaborations.
A few words from Ashley Shaheen - Our New Groton Center Director!
For those whom I do not know, I would like to share a little bit about myself. I am a lifelong dancer and enjoy spending time with family, friends, and with my sweet fur friend, Charlie, a 5 year old Maltipoo. More importantly, I have a vested interest in building community relationships, developing community programs and services based on the needs and interests of community members. I pursued a Bachelors of Science in Health Sciences with a minor in Biology and then a Masters of Education in Community Engagement. I received both degrees from Merrimack College in North Andover, MA. After graduate school I had the opportunity to serve as the Senior Activities Coordinator for the Wellesley Council on Aging followed by a position as the Assistant Director of Senior Services for the Town of Hopkinton and most recently the Director of Elder and Human Services for the Town of Littleton.
I look forward to meeting you and invite you to attend a Meet and Greet on September 7 at 1:00 p.m. Refreshments provided and preregistration required. If that date does not work with your schedule, please give me a call or drop in to say, hello!
