Brookline, MA, USA

Brookline Community Aging Network – BrooklineCAN – is an all-volunteer organization that focuses on Brookline as a great place to live. It provides information for older residents that helps them remain engaged in the life of the community, and advocates to make Brookline an even better place to live for seniors and everyone. It is separate from, but works with, the Brookline Senior Center, the town's Council on Aging, and Age‑friendly Cities Committee.

This website is a clearing house of information detailing Brookline's extensive network of services and activities that help make our town an eminently livable community. Here you will find the abundance of social, educational, and recreational programs that can enrich our lives, build a sense of community, and make our town an even better place for all.
