O'Shea House is a Federally funded, elderly/disabled development consisting of 100 one-bedroom units with balconies (five of which are wheelchair accessible). The building is a high rise, elevator-equipped apartment building located at 61 Park Street. The Manager's office is located on the first floor.
Brookline Housing Authority has partnered with Springwell, our regional social service agency, to bring the CareConnection Program to the O'Shea House. The CareConnections Program offers an on-site care coordinator to assist residents with services as needed so that they may remain independent in their homes. The care coordinator's office is located on the first floor.
The development is wonderfully situated just blocks away from Coolidge Corner, Beacon and Harvard Streets, places of worship, the Stop and Shop, Trader Joe's and many stores and restaurants. The Green Line's "C", Beacon Street, trolley stop is two blocks away and the #66 bus with a route between Harvard Square and Dudley Station stops one block away.

The building has the CareConnection Program office and a community room with computer, television and library areas as well as a kitchen. There is also assigned parking, subject to availability.
