The Brewster Council on Aging exists to support and advocate for older adults. The organization offers meals, events, resources, and services to seniors that live in Brewster.
The COA was a lifesaver for us when my partner was recovering from surgery. He needed a temporary bed rail to help him get out of bed. They have a medical device shed that is filled with walking sticks, wheelchairs, bed rails, commodes, shower seats, walkers, and more. You can use the items for free for as long as you need them and simply return them once you’re done.
Regular activities and events at the COA include bingo, bridge for women and men, Brewster Men’s Coffee Club and the WOW, Wonderful Older Women group, exercise classes, weekly meals, special occasion meals, quilting groups, yoga, and more.
They also offer computer help, pet grooming, quilters, emergency cellphones, banking assistance, financial planning, legal help, Alzheimer’s assistance programs, Medicare advice, fuel assistance, food pantry, sight loss services, tax abatement, and more.
The Brewster Council on Aging is located at 1673 Main Street in Brewster. It shares the building with the Anglican Church of the Resurrection. It is a local landmark that you can’t miss. It is a stunning unique bright yellow historic building, next to the fire station.
Currently, because of COVID-19, The Brewster COA is closed. For now, you can enjoy some virtual activities like funky fitness with Frank Callahan.
