About Us

OUR MISSION

We are an open and affirming agency dedicated to being the leader in improving the quality of life for elders, people with disabilities, and their families.

Founded in 1973, Bristol Elder Services, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization with a proven record of advocating for individuals living in the greater Attleboro, Fall River, and Taunton areas.

Our comprehensive system of in-home health and supportive services enables our consumers to remain in their homes or to return to their homes after a stay in a hospital or nursing facility.

Working with elders, their caregivers, and healthcare professionals, we are proud to make a difference in the lives of elders and disabled individuals.
