The Elder Affairs Division identifies the total needs of the City's elderly population so as to design, promote and implement services to meet those needs and to coordinate and enhance existing elderly services. The Division ensures extensive outreach is made to linguistic minority elderly communities within Chelsea, as well as other difficult to reach elders, so as to provide equal access to elder services. The mandate of the Division of Elder Affairs is to provide services to the seniors of the City of Chelsea.

The City's goal is to offer resources and services which will allow them to develop their strengths and function productively and independently in their homes, and in the larger community. The City has always, and will continue to acknowledge the value, dignity, diversity and wisdom of older adults. The Division operates the Chelsea Senior Center for those seniors who are ambulatory. Services are also provided for seniors who are frail, homebound or handicapped, in coordination with Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES), the regional agency on aging.
