Why should I join if I am healthy?

Beacon Hill Village is for everyone. Our members join for a variety of reasons. Some join to enjoy our spectrum of programs and activities. Others appreciate the convenience of going to one source for all kinds of answers and services. The opportunity to connect with others in our neighborhood is also a huge draw. And, some members join because they need help at home now, and others want the peace of mind knowing they will be prepared for the future.

Can I buy my parents or other family member or friend a membership? 

A Beacon Hill Village membership is a wonderful gift. However, membership isn’t for everyone. Therefore, we ask that the prospective member speak with our Village outreach coordinator or someone in Member Services to understand if the membership is a good fit.



Can the Village help in an emergency?

In a medical emergency, call 911 or your primary care physician first. 
The office staff can often address a need on short notice. For example, we can arrange for home caregivers, case managers and patient advocates.  We can find volunteers to pick up prescriptions, run an errand or simply drop in to chat.

If you need us, call the Village office at 617-723-9713.



What if I need something that you haven't mentioned?

We will work with you to find an answer to your question or need.  From years of experience, we have a long and varied list of volunteers and providers. We are skilled at finding new resources. Members often say, “I didn’t know the Village could do that!”

If you need us, call the Village office at 617-723-9713.
