Every day, home care agencies help tens of thousands of Bay Staters live safely – and better – at home. Though health insurance and public programs like Medicare often pay for home care following hospitalizations or during acute illnesses, they do not typically cover chronic or supportive home care services. Private duty home care agencies, however, specialize in these situations.
In order to help connect agencies who provide private home care with the families who need their services, the Alliance is pleased to announce the publication of the 2015 editions of the Guide to Private Home Care Services, which will begin shipping next week.
As like last year, the Guide is split into three regional editions:
- Boston & Northeastern Massachusetts (70 agencies), covering Essex, Middlesex, and Suffolks, as well as the city of Brookline;
- South-of-Boston, Cape, and Islands (66 agencies), covering Norfolk, Bristol, Plymouth, Barnstable, Dukes, and Nantucket counties; and
- Central & Western Massachusetts (43 agencies), covering Worcester, Franklin, Hampshire, and Berkshire counties;
The county-by-county cross-references help you easily find local care, and the short essays inside will give you all the information you need to make the best decision for those you love.
All members will receive copies in the mail over the next few weeks. Additional copies are available for order through the links above, and — as always — at no charge for orders of 50 or fewer. Anyone needing a more detailed directory of home care agencies might consider our 2015 Resource Directory, which includes a detailed town-by-town index of 187 agencies from every corner of the state.
