Assistance for seniors with Medicare


Littleton seniors are encouraged to take advantage of a statewide program called SHINE, or Serving Health Information Needs of Elders, which provides free counseling and assistance to Massachusetts residents with Medicare and their caregivers. A SHINE counselor is available to meet with Littleton residents every Wednesday morning at the Council on Aging offices. To make an appointment to discuss Medicare, Medigap, retiree insurance plans, or prescription drug assistance, schedule an appointment by calling the council at 978-540-2470.
