for 21 towns in north central Massachusetts, is committed to the goal of maximizing
the independence and self-determination of the elderly and disabled by providing comprehensive
information, advocacy, and access to community long term care.
We are a private, non-profit agency, incorporated in 1974, that employs nurses
and case managers to assist those who need help to remain independent in their own
homes in safety, comfort, and dignity. Our major source of funding is the Executive
Office of Elder Affairs, which oversees several programs designed to promote independent
living for the elderly through a statewide network of ASAPs. Grants from public and
private sources, such as the Central Massachusetts Agency on Aging, the United Way
of North Central Massachusetts, the Greater Worcester Community Foundation, and the
Knowlton Foundation help make it possible for us to provide a comprehensive array
of services and programs to address the needs of elders and their caregivers.
For younger disabled adults, we are able to offer programs that support independence
with funding from the Division of Medical Assistance.
Public subsidies enable us to offer many services at little or no cost. For those
