Caring for a loved one? We're here to help.
Adult Family Care
The Adult Foster Care Program (AFC) provides a monthly stipend to caregivers who reside with and care for a MassHealth recipient age 16 and older. The member must have MassHealth Standard or Commonhealth and must have a permanent or chronic medical condition that requires daily hands-on assistance and/or cueing/supervision to successfully complete at least one personal care task. For more information, click the link below or call 508-573-7200 and ask for someone in the AFC Program.
Family Caregiver Support Program
The Family Caregiver Support Program offers support to caregivers of any age caring for a loved one over the age of 60 as well as grandparents over the age of 55 caring for grandchildren under the age of 18 or an adult with a disability who is 18-59 years of age. The Caregiver Specialist, Karen Trilligan, can be a lifeline to community resources, information or emotional support. For more information, click the link below or contact a caregiving specialist.
Every nursing home has an ombudsman available for any resident of any age who has concerns regarding their stay. While we encourage residents and families to first give the staff the opportunity to assist, there is a definite benefit to having an impartial person involved. If you need help identifying your ombudsman, or for questions about the service, contact Program Director Mary Brooks at 508-573-7235 or email@example.com.
One Care is a health care option for Massachusetts adults, age 21-64, who are eligible for both MassHealth and Medicare (dual eligible).

Personal Care Attendant
The Personal Care Attendant (PCA) Program allows MassHealth recipients of any age funding to hire their own personal care workers.
