Many of our clients live with a family member who could qualify as a caregiver and be eligible for a monthly payment of up to $1,500 per month. To qualify, a family member must need assistance with personal care including walking, dressing toileting, eating or bathing. Please come to learn about these services and more.

Adult Family (Foster) Care and Personal Care Assistance are two regulated MassHealth programs. In some cases, individuals who need assistance with daily personal care may qualify for either program (you can only be enrolled in one). In order to make the best educated decision about which would best meet your needs, come to this informative workshop to hear about the differences, the similarities, and the benefits of these two programs.
