Christine Alessandro, executive director of BayPath Elder Services, told the Community Development Authority about the agreement during its meeting last week.
Under the agreement, the Authority would provide space in the 240 Main St. location for a program coordinator and a support service staff member.
Supportive housing provides a personal care worker onsite 24/7 for the three housing sites, Alessandro
said for seniors with a service like LifeLine, non-emergency requests for assistance could be forwarded directly to the BayPath vendor instead of being sent to police and fire officials.
With the Council on Aging set to move from the Main Street housing facility to a new senior center being built at Ward Park, space will be available in the building which BayPath hopes to occupy, Alessandro
said the organization, based in Marlborough, is expanding and needs more space.
Part of the supportive housing program includes congregate meals, Alessandro
said, which could potentially be open to seniors in the community who dont live at one of the three properties.
The vendor hired by BayPath
could also provide home care services to tenants who qualify under state standards.
Tenants who might not qualify for subsidized home care services could still hire the BayPath vendor to provide other home care services, Alessandro
