Auburn, Massachusetts is a lovely little town, with a senior population of over 18%, located in Greater Worcester counties. The first settlers came to Auburn in 1714 and since that time, Auburn has enjoyed maintaining its New England history and roots in the Greater Worcester area. Incorporated in 1778 as Ward with a name change in 1837 to Auburn, franchised senior home care agencies did not arrive until 1996 with the opening of the first Home Instead Senior Care office.
There are lots of fun things for Auburn seniors to do in Auburn. There is a park in downtown Auburn named Goddard Memorial Park, in honor of Auburn's native, Robert H. Goddard. Statues and architecture are many sites to see when senior home care agencies and their CAREGivers take seniors on tour of Auburn. Home Instead Senior Care, a private pay senior home care agency, can provide senior home care services to Auburn seniors when transportation is needed. Auburn's Historical Museum is also a destination for home health agencies to bring independent Auburn seniors.
Since over 43% of Auburn's population is over 45 years old, senior home health care is an issue for both the Auburn seniors as well as the Baby Boomer generation who will be looking for senior home care services and caregivers for their parents. In 2009 the senior population in Auburn was over 20% of the total population. The need for the Auburn Senior Center elderly care and information has become a large part of the Auburn senior resident's needs.
The Auburn Council on Aging and the Auburn Senior Center located at 4 Goddard Drive, Auburn, MA provides a multitude of senior care services. This past year, over 2400 seniors were served through one of Auburn's Senior Center programs. Meal programs, tax preparation, information and referral, dinners, concerts, exercise classes and Bingo are a few of the many elder care services provided by the Auburn Senior Center. Senior support services such as transportation to Malls, Doctor appointments and companionship services were also provided. These senior transportation services are also services that Home Instead Senior Care can provide to the Auburn elder. As Auburn's senior population will keep increasing, it will be more and more critical for Auburn's elder population to consider private pay in-home elder care if Auburn seniors want to remain safe and independent.
