A goal of this program is to enable independent living and prevent unnecessary or premature nursing home institutionalization. Thus, individuals who wish to remain living in their homes or in the homes of family members will want to look further into this program’s benefits and eligibility requirements.
This program is administered by Massachusetts Medicaid, which is called MassHealth. Participants must be enrolled in MassHealth Standard or CommonHealth (although other insurances may also be eligible).
The participants are responsible for the self-direction of their care. Individuals are provided with funds, by way of a fiscal intermediary. Participants use these funds to hire and manage their own personal care attendants to assist them with their activities of daily living and other tasks around the home. The program participant acts as an employer. If the applicant is not able to manage his or her care, a friend or relative may fill this role as Adult Family Caregiver.
In Massachusetts, individuals can hire friends, neighbors, and even some family members to work as their Adult Family Caregiver. While spouses and legal guardians are not eligible to be hired, adult children, friends, and former spouses can be hired and paid for the caregiving services they provide.
