Welcome to Newton at Homea non-profit membership organization founded by a small group of Newton residents who wanted to build a community of friendship and support among older Newton residents.

NAH offers a wide variety of vital services and social activities that help its members live safe, active, and connected lives in the places that mean the most to them: their homes and apartments, their neighborhood, and their city.

Happy Valentines Day from NAH members to Our Volunteers

 

Our NAH volunteers have been a lifeline for our family during this time of isolation.  My husband, who now has challenges with classes and Zoom, looks forward to his visits from his NAH friends to sing and paint.  They provide continuity, care and connection for him in multiple ways.  And the calls from our “snow buddy” and from Hannah make me feel less alone in this journey. Thank you all for the dedication.

Valentine: Without Newton At Home volunteers we would be lost and it would be difficult to remain in our home.  In particular, we are most grateful for having our trashcans brought out and returned every week.  Many, many thanks!!

Newton at Home has helped me set up a phone system, install railings on staircase and bring trash and recycling to the street for pickup. Thank you to everyone who made my life a bit easier.

My Volunteer Keeps me in Stitches!  That is, she modifies clothing to adapt to my disabilities.  It is not very funny, but it enhances my independence.
