The Boston Globe recently announced that Mystic Valley Elder Services in Malden was one of the top 40 mid-sized companies in the Greater Boston area for which to work in 2013. The Globe is using the printing services of the newspaper to make the other businesses on the list, and those in the area, aware of this recognition. Employees there will no doubt add the accolade to their next business card printing order as well.

Mystic Valley ranked at #25 out of 40 on the list of Top Places to Work for, and was ranked ahead of Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley, which is located in Lawrence and was #30 on the list.

Mystic Valley Elder Services was established in 1975 and, since then, has been working with adults with disabilities, older people, and those who provide care for them in Malden, Melrose, Everett, Reading, North Reading, Wakefield, and Stoneham. The organization ensures that transportation, home care, protective services, Meals on Wheels programs, and community service opportunities are provided for its clients. Funding for Mystic Valley Elder Services is provided by the state and federal governments.

Prior to 2013, Mystic Valley was on the Top Places to Work for list from 2008 to 2011.

In order to qualify as a mid-sized company, there needs to be between 100 and 249 people working for the business, according to the survey conducted by the Globe. At the time of the survey, Mystic Valley had 133 employees in Massachusetts and an additional 67 across the United States.
