Massachusetts, Elder home care programs have been cut

MetroWest feels pinch of local aid cuts - Framingham, MA - The MetroWest Daily News
Elder home care programs have been cut by $21.7 million over the last three fiscal years, a 14 percent cut when adjusted for inflation that results in approximately 2,500 fewer frail elders receiving community-based long-term care services that allow them to stay in their homes. There are now more than 2,700 elders each month on a waiting list for home care, the policy center report says.
