The Gloucester Council on Aging (COA) was established by City Ordinance in 1959, as a department of the municipal government with a goal of identifying, addressing, and serving the needs of Gloucester’s older residents.

The mission of the COA is to serve as a focal point where seniors and their families can access the local and state network of elder services, while providing an integrated array of social, health, recreational and education programs for older men and women.

Accommodation of programs and services, safety and security, overall comfort and convenience, and long-term availability are the principal areas of concern relative to a senior center facility.

The dedicated and mostly long-time staff members are Lucia E. Sheehan, Center Coordinator; Lydia Bertolino, Outreach Coordinator/Social Worker/Shine Counselor; Christine Parker, Social Day Care Coordinator; Juni Van Dyke, Art Program Coordinator; Michael Feeney, Senior Clerk and Mitsuko Leahy and volunteer Katie Monahan.  S.C.S.E.P.staff members include Tim Mountain, Grace Catania and Daniel Leahy.

Accommodation of programs and services, safety and security, overall comfort and convenience, and long-term availability are the principal areas of concern relative to a senior center facility.


The activities of the COA are governed by the COA Board of Directors

The Grand Opening & Dedication Ceremony for the Rose Baker Senior Center was held May 12, 2001.  Gloucester’s new senior Center was named to honor the memory of the first Chairperson of the Gloucester Council on Aging.  Rose was an active leader in many organizations and initiatives focused on the needs of the elderly.  She worked tirelessly in community services on behalf of Gloucester’s seniors and for the welfare of older people everywhere. Her primary goal, after convincing the City of the need for the Council’s first Executive Director, was to obtain a permanent senior center for Gloucester.
