On-Site Supportive Service Program


The Sharon Housing Authority has partnered with HESSCO Elder Services to offer a Supportive Housing Program to the residents at Hixson Farm Road. HESSCO has contracted with Anodyne Homemaker Services Corp to be the designated vendor agency and provides 24 hour coverage.

The Supportive Housing Initiative was developed by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (Elder Affairs) and the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) to create an "assisted living like" environment in state funded public elderly and disabled housing. Like traditional assisted living, services are offered on an as needed basis, 24 hours per day. Residents who do not qualify for state funded home care services based on their frailty level and income are able to privately purchase the entire package of supportive services or some of the services based upon their need. Residents who are home care eligible receive all or some of the services at no additional cost.

24 Hour On-site Service: Under the supportive housing environment, all residents can access assistance at any time of the day. This service is designed to respond to unscheduled resident needs as well as to monitor residents who need scheduled assistance. These aides can be reached by calling the on-site aide at 617-529-4945.

The Supportive Services Coordinator, Chelsea Nelson, is located on-site in building 5, unit 27B during the hours 8:30a-4:00p Monday-Friday. Chelsea can be reached by phone at 781-806-0886. Chelsea will provide on-site care management and organize and facilitate activities and social events for residents. For more information about the program or if you are interested in services, please call Chelsea.
